The Maryland Science Center
next month will host the “Mummies of the World” exhibit on its final stop of its U.S. tour. The exhibit will bring 150 human and animal mummies and other ancient artifacts from South America, Europe, Asia, Oceania and Egypt. “Mummies of the World” is considered the largest traveling exhibit of mummies and related artifacts to date. Highlights from the exhibit include the Detmold Child, a child who died in Peru more than 3,500 years ago, to a mummified lizard from the Sahara Desert.
Running in conjunction with the exhibit is the IMAX movie “Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs,” which follows scientists as they explore the world of the ancient pharaohs. The Maryland Science Center will also offer hands-on interactive stations with the exhibition to teach visitors about the process and history behind mummification.
The Maryland Science Center’s current exhibit, “Sherlock Holmes and the Clocktower Mystery,” runs through Sept. 2. Tickets to the exhibit are included in regular admission, which is $16.95 without IMAX and $20.95 with IMAX admission.
