Mummies - one of the largest collections of mummies housed in North America is an exhibition that takes place at the American Museum of Natural History in New York from March 20, 2017 through to January 7, 2018.


From ancient Egypt to pre-Columbian Peru, the exhibition will explore the intersection between societies, their environment, and the preparations they made for their dead.

Through high-resolution CT scans and forensically reconstructed sculptures, visitors will glimpse people from centuries ago and learn how contemporary scientists have gleaned stunning details about their ages, practices, and even their causes of death. Interactive touch tables let visitors virtually “unravel” or see inside mummies as they delve deep into the unique stories of the people or animals who lie within.

Mummies was developed by The Field Museum of Chicago. The American Museum of Natural History gratefully acknowledges the Richard and Karen LeFrak Exhibition and Education Fund. Mummies is proudly supported by Chase Private Client.

Photos from the American Museum of Natural History, NY, USA (15)

This album contains photos of the the American Museum of Natural History in New York, and it is unlike an ordinary museum. This museum is very kids-friendly and attractive. In the Mammal Hall, we were sure that the animals are going to come alive and leave their spots. At the entrance to the museum visitors can see a giant piece of a meteorite, which feels like iron by touch. Huge dinosaurs' skeletons are exhibited on the last floor of the museum.
