Natural History Museum "Mummies"
Cici Ogden, New York, Mar 21st 2017
The Natural History Museum opened a new exhibition this week entitled "Mummies." The exhibit features mummies from both ancient Egypt and ancient Peru, and analyzes the mummies from three angles. First, it looks at who the mummified people were in life. Second, it looks at why they were mummified. And third, it shows how modern technology continues to teach scientists new things about mummies. The show will run through January 2018, and tickets can be purchased at the museum or at amnh.org.
