EGYPTIAN MUMMIES: EXPLORING ANCIENT LIVES
Advanced technologies lead visitors on a journey through time
into the lives of six individuals from our common ancestry
The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) is honoured to welcome six mummies from ancient Egypt as it hosts the North American premiere of Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives, an exhibition combining arts and science based on research undertaken by the British Museum. Until recently, very little was known about who these people were, how they lived and how they died. Thanks to an approach using the latest non-invasive technology, the public will be transported several thousand years back in time to discover how these people lived along the Nile between 900 BCE (before the common era) and 180 CE. An accompanying 240 objects will provide added context into their lives, beliefs and deaths.
