Mummy Secrets of the Tomb

Here we have a traveling American exhibition presented by the British Museum and opening in Richmond Virginia at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The exhibition will run from November 19, 2011, through to March 11, 2012, and display more than a hundred objects including the beautiful 22nd dynasty mummy of Nesperennub which will follow his story in life and in the afterlife.

Nesperennub will not be the only mummy there will also be a cat mummy and artifacts including stone sarcophagus and statues, jewelry and parts of a book of the dead.
