The Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS) will host the Australian premiere of Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives, an acclaimed exhibition from the British Museum, opening on 10 December at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney.
In a rare close-up look, Egyptian Mummies will use the latest CT scanning technology and 3D visualisation to take visitors beyond the coffin to uncover what lies beneath layers of history buried for thousands of years. Six mummies who lived and died in Egypt between 3000 and 1800 years ago will be on display alongside almost 200 objects associated with funerary practices and daily life.
