Mummy Dearest

It’s time to do a little digging. This summer the Arizona Science Center is unwrapping the mysteries of ancient Egyptian culture with the feature exhibition “Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets, Modern Science.” This traveling exhibition, created by the Science Museum of Minnesota, lets attendees explore the history and practices of a long-lost period through interactive displays that utilize the science and technology of modern archaeologists.

Special features include an actual human mummy, forensic scans and facial reconstructions, animal mummies, a re-creation of an Egyptian tomb, a life-size replica of a mummy being unwrapped, and art and artifacts on loan from the Brooklyn Museum and the Academy of Natural Sciences.

Discover “Lost Egypt” now through Monday, September 1, at 600 East Washington Street. Admission for this featured exhibition is $26.95 for the general public and $8 for members. Science Center hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For more information, visit www.azscience.org or call 602-716-2000.
