Egyptian Mummies - World Premiere Exhibition

Think you know mummies? Think again.

Come face-to-face with six ancient Egyptian mummies and use the latest technology to go beyond the wrappings and discover what lies beneath in Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives, a world premiere exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney.

Six mummies selected from the British Museum collection who lived and died in Egypt between 1800 and 3000 years ago will be on display alongside their 3D CT scan visualisations that unlock hidden secrets of mummification and provide a unique insight into the everyday lives of ancient Egyptians.

Did these mummified individuals suffer from poor health during their life? What is the significance of the paintings that adorn a coffin? How were bodies mummified to grant the deceased eternal life in the netherworld? These and other questions are answered by the mummies themselves, thanks to the cutting-edge technology utilised in this exhibition, and the age, sex, identity, state of health and mummification of each mummy will be revealed.

Although these mummies are still wrapped, technological developments have enabled curators and researchers to virtually explore the lives of six ancient Egyptians and reveal the secrets of the mummies while preserving and respecting their original condition.

The presentation of this exhibition is a collaboration between the British Museum and the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences.

Visitors are advised that this exhibition contains human remains and CT scan images of mummified human remains.

Tickets include general admission to Powerhouse Museum.
