Mummies of the World: The Exhibition

To make Mummies of the World: The Exhibition, it took 10 museums, several countries, and thousands of years. That work resulted in a collection of 45 mummified specimens and artifacts from around the globe. Each one has a story for viewers to discover. The Orlovits family was interred in a long-forgotten Hungarian church crypt in the 18th century and discovered only in 1994. The Baron von Holz meanwhile most likely died in Germany nearly 400 years ago, and was discovered by descendants of his relatives in the crypt of his own family’s castle. Naturally, the ancient Egyptians are well-represented, with their ranks including a cat mummy in painted linens.

Non-invasive technological advances such as DNA analysis and radiocarbon dating draw back the shroud of history without disturbing the mummies. 3-D animation reveals the process of preserving a mummy so that it survives the ravages of time and plays the saxophone during pan-global monster mashes. An in-depth, two-hour audio tour helps visitors delve into the lives of the humans they once were and the world they knew.

Buffalo Museum of Science

What does it feel like to be caught in a tornado? How big were mastodons? How do engineers test automobile designs? All of these questions and more are answered at the Buffalo Museum of Science, where families can explore paleontology, biology, astronomy, and archaeology—and that's before you factor in rotating exhibits on fields such as robotics or entomology.

The discoveries continue beyond the museum walls. Buffalo Museum of Science also operates the Tifft Nature Preserve, a 264-acre wetland preserve in South Buffalo, and sponsors on-location events to expose students of all ages to immersive science education.

Customer Reviews

A lot of hands on interaction displays. Was fun and interesting!
Rita C. · September 28, 2014
Lots of fun things for kids but a few exhibits are getting a bit tired looking. The special Mummy exhibit was very well done.
