Mummies of the World: The Exhibit
.
REAL MUMMIES. REAL SCIENCE. REAL PEOPLE.
Information For Families
.
REAL MUMMIES.
• The exhibit provides a once-in-a-lifetime collection of real mummies (human and animal) and artifacts of ancient people from every region of the world on loan from 12 world-renowned museums, organizations and collections coming from 5 countries including Europe, South America and Ancient Egypt. Some have been taken care of in museums for over 100 years.
Portraying both natural and intentional mummification, this compelling collection includes ancient mummies dating back as far as 4,500 years. A fascinating mix of old and new, Mummies of the World bridges the gap between past and present.
REAL SCIENCE.
How do mummies happen? What can they teach us? What clues do they bring us for the future?
• Explore how mummies are created through both natural processes and intentional practices. Mummification occurs after death and when the process of decay is blocked, generally from a lack of moisture or oxygen. This can happen as an intentional process, which sometimes is referred to as artificial mummification, or as a natural process, which sometimes is referred to as accidental mummification. Naturally preserved mummies have been found in places as varied as deserts, caves, salt, sand, cellars, crypts and bogs.
• Through State-of-the-art multimedia, hands-on interactive stations and cutting-edge 3-D animation, discover how modern science enables researchers to study mummies through innovative and non-invasive ways.
The exhibition highlights real advances in the scientific methods used to study mummies, including Computed Tomography (CT), ancient DNA analysis and radiocarbon dating, all of which allow researchers to learn about the lives, history, and cultures of the mummies.
• By knowing how people lived long ago, we can better understand how differently people live today. This allows us to observe how cultures change over time and give us insight into how our own culture may change in the future.
REAL PEOPLE.
Who were they? Where did they come from? What secrets do mummies hold about the past?
• Explore the mummies’ history and origins. An unprecedented window into the lives of ancient people and cultures from every region of the world to learn about past civilizations. Extraordinary details about the past: how tall people were, how long they lived, what kinds of food they ate and from what diseases they suffered. Clothing, jewelry and other personal artifacts placed on or with a mummy can tell us about the person’s status and lifestyle, as well as the values, beliefs, and attitudes of the culture in which they lived.
THE EXHIBITION INCLUDES:
The Vac Mummies, a mummified family from Hungary believed to have died from tuberculosis
The Baron Von Holz, a German nobleman found tucked away in the family crypt of a 14th century castle wearing his best leather boots
The Burns Collection, a group of medical mummies used to teach anatomy in the early 19th century
An Egyptian priest named Nes-Hor whom we have determined had arthritis and a broken left hip
Egyptian animal mummies including a falcon, a fish, a dog and a baby crocodile, many of which were deliberately preserved to accompany royals for eternity
MUMAB, a Baltimore man in his 70’s who had donated his body to science and became the first human being to receive a royal Egyptian mummification in over 2,000 years. The “Maryland Mummy” was created by scientists in 1994 using the same methods the ancient Egyptians used
And much more…

Aug 18-21-SolaNoir: Street Art Festival, KC Crossroads Arts District, Kansas City, Missouri 64108; Facebook Page
• Kansas City is experiencing a major cultural expansion, with it's epicenter in the East Crossroads. With the Solar Eclipse touching down in our hometown, now is the time to capitalize on this international attention. That is why we are bringing in some of the best street artists from around the country and even the world, to commemorate this 3-minute event and make it last a little longer...
• If you've ever taken a trip to Miami, you've more than likely seen Wynwood Blvd. You may also be familiar with Bushwick in Brooklyn. These street art mecca's are world-renown and draw hundreds of thousands of tourists every year. This is what we are transforming the East Crossroads into: an art-mecca of our own mid-west design.
• We have nearly two dozen buildings that are primed and ready to go be painted all across the Crossroads Arts District. What we need now is funding for materials and equipment, travel expenses and food/beverage costs. The weekend leading up to the Eclipse, we want to promote this truly incredible Arts District and really put it on the map as an art-rich destination. In a week's time, we hope to transform the facade of the Crossroads Arts District and reshape our collective cultural identity as a whole.
Check out our website for more info including a full artist line-up
