> DESCRIPTION

From deep within The Field Museum’s vaults comes the mysterious world of mummies.  Opening the Vaults: Mummies gives a rare up-close look at mummies—some not on public view for over a century—and the new discoveries by Field Museum scientists.  Showcasing a unique selection of over 20 mummies – including one of the oldest mummies in the world – discover why mummification was not just for royal Egyptians.  Virtually navigate into a sarcophagus, unwrap the outer wrappings, and explore the interior.  You may think that you’ve seen mummies before, but you’ve never seen mummies like this.  For a limited time, only at The Field Museum.
