Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets Modern Science

The Northwest Museum in Spokane Washington is currently running a short exhibition "Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets Modern Science". The exhibition contains a number of mummies including one human mummy from ancient Egypt. The amazing technology of modern science on mummy studies has brought images of what the unwrapped mummy looks like and what else may lie under the wrappings without removing the bandages and destroy the mummy.

The short running exhibition is very child-friendly with interactive displays but time is running out as the show closes on January 6, 2017. So if you are in Spokane before that then bring the kids for a fascinating day and meet the mummy!

The beautiful mummy is from the Ptolemaic period, Cleopatra's dynasty.
