Inside every mummy is a story waiting to be told.

Mummies of the World is the largest exhibition of mummies and related artifacts ever assembled. This compelling collection, presented with reverence and dignity, includes ancient mummies and important artifacts from Asia, Oceania, South America, Europe, as well as ancient Egypt, dating as far back as 6,500 years.

A fascinating mix of old and new, this never-before-seen collection bridges the gap between past and present with contributions from 20 world-renowned museums and organizations across seven countries.

Embark on a journey into the extraordinary world of mummies and mummification. Through modern science, engaging interactive and multi-media exhibits featuring 3-D animation, explore how mummies are created, where they come from and who they were. Using state-of-the-art scientific methodology, discover how modern science enables researchers to study mummies through innovative and non-invasive ways, offering unprecedented insights into past cultures and civilizations.

What secrets do mummies hold about the past…and what clues do they bring us for the future? A journey awaits as we unravel their mysteries.

Plan about 60 to 90 minutes to explore the exhibition.

If you have any questions, a MOSI representative is available everyday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 813-987-6000 to assist you.
