Golden Mummies of Egypt

Niagara County | Festivals & Annual Events

Glittering gold and mysterious mummies are among Ancient Egypt’s most enduring attractions. This exhibit examines hopes and
fears about the afterlife in Egypt when wealthy members of this multicultural society had their mummified bodies encased in gold
in hopes of joining the gods after death. Stories hidden beneath the wrappings are revealed, but also questions why we are
fascinated by mummies and what they might tell us about ourselves. 10-4pm. Buffalo Museum of Science , 1020 Humboldt
Pkwy., Buffalo 14211/716-896-5200/ https://www.sciencebuff.org/exhibits/golden-mummies/
