This is going to be amazing. The Golden Mummies of Egypt exhibition coming to the Buffalo Museum of Science. Buffalo is the first stop on the international tour.

The display will include a collection of over 100 treasures – seen for the first time ever in the United States.

The tour will make it’s first U.S. stop at the Buffalo Museum of Science on February 8th.

The exhibition consists of over 100 key objects from the Manchester Museum’s world-class collection, including eight mummies, as well as masks, coffins, jewelry and sculpture. Blending Egyptian, Roman and Greek imagery, the strikingly lifelike painted mummy portraits are among the most haunting images from the Ancient World.

Using interactive CT scan technology, Golden Mummies of Egypt reveals stories hidden beneath the wrappings, but also questions why we are fascinated by mummies and what they might tell us about ourselves.

Tickets for the exhibition can be purchased here.
