Come face-to-face with the largest collection of mummies ever assembled.
Premiering the evening of February 9 with the Center's Galaxy Gala
Opens To the Public on February 10 Through September 2, 2019
Mummies of the World: The Exhibition features 40 real human and animal mummies and 85 rare artifacts from across the globe. This blockbuster exhibition, arriving in Phoenix straight from Budapest, Hungary, provides a window into the lives of ancient people from every region of the world including Europe, South America and Ancient Egypt, offering unprecedented insights into past cultures and civilizations.
The exhibition will enthrall guests with dramatic displays of the mummies and their personal stories, as well as state-of-the-art multimedia stations that will take guests on a 4,500-year journey to explore the mummies’ history and origins as well as how they were created.
- The Vac Mummies, a mummified family from Hungary believed to have died from tuberculosis, preserved in a small church until the remains of 265 mummies were discovered by a bricklayer during repair work in 1994
- Baron Von Holz, a German nobleman found tucked away in the family crypt of a 14th-century castle wearing his best boots after perishing in the castle while seeking refuge from the Thirty Years' War
- Egyptian animal mummies including a cat, a falcon, a fish, a dog and a baby crocodile, many of which were deliberately preserved to accompany royals for eternity
- MUMAB, the first authentic replication of the 2800-year-old Egyptian mummification process, performed on a deceased Maryland man in 1994 using the same tools and methods as described on ancient Egyptian papyrus
Note: Mummies in the exhibition may vary by market.
Mummies of the World: The Exhibition is the must-see exhibition of 2019.
