Mummies of the World Exhibit Enters Final Weeks in Orlando

Just a few weeks remain before the nationally recognized Mummies of the World: The Exhibition closes at Orlando Science Center on Nov. 29. The presentation in Orlando marks the twelfth stop on the exhibition’s exclusive tour of North America. Parents looking for an educational and engaging family experience or individuals searching for a unique cultural destination during Thanksgiving Break* should visit the Orlando Science Center and this groundbreaking exhibition before it leaves Central Florida.

“This exhibition has thrilled and fascinated our visitors during its stay in Orlando,” says JoAnn Newman, President and CEO of Orlando Science Center. “It is an incredible blend of science, culture and art that challenges your preconceived notions about mummies and mummification.  It truly is an unforgettable experience.”

Mummies of the World: The Exhibition is the largest collection of rare mummies and artifacts from across the globe, including displays of naturally and intentionally preserved mummies. Also included in the exhibition are the Vác Mummies, a mummified family from Hungary believed to have died from tuberculosis; the Baron Von Holz, a German nobleman found tucked away in the family crypt of a 14th century castle wearing his best leather boots; MUMAB, also known as the Maryland Mummy, a modern-day ancient mummy created by scientists in 1994 using the same methods as ancient Egyptians; and many more.

“We are so pleased that Mummies of the World is here in Orlando providing the public with this rare opportunity to learn about the history, stories and science involved in the study of mummies,” says Marcus Corwin, president of American Exhibitions, Inc., producers of Mummies of the World. “We encourage those in the area to be sure and plan ahead, as this is their last chance to see the exhibition before the collection of mummies leaves for the next stop on the national tour.”

Through modern science and engaging interactives, this astounding presentation of more than 150 specimens and objects reveals how the scientific study of mummies provides a window into the lives of ancient people, offering unprecedented insights into past cultures and civilizations.
