In this brand new musical adaptation of everyone’s favorite sarcastic tubby tabby, Garfield awakens to find his birthday – the most important day of the year – has fallen on a Monday. The horror! To make matters worse, all his friends – Jon, Odie, Arlene, and even his nemesis, Nermal – have completely forgotten it’s his big day. Only his beloved teddy bear, Pookie, understands his disappointment. Feeling rejected, Garfield leaves the comforts of home and strikes out to find adventure. Making it as far as the alley, Garfield soon realizes in the outside there’s no T.V., the food is garbage (literally), and animal control is always just around the corner. In the end, Garfield learns little things like, you know, the value of friendship and also that “home is where the heart – and the food – is.”

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
