EGYPTIAN MUMMIES
EXPLORING ANCIENT LIVES

Making its North American première at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, this internationally acclaimed exhibition produced by the British Museum reconstructs the lives of six people who lived along the Nile, using an innovative approach that combines art and science.

Accompanied by digital visualizations and more than 200 objects from ancient Egypt, these encounters offer a portrait of who these individuals were, presented with the utmost respect. Age, beliefs and the diseases they suffered from : each mummy has a story to tell. Come with us to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts for a guided tour of this exhibition.

Tuesday, 19 November.

Cost: 90 $ – Bus, museum entry and guided tour.

Invite your Montreal friends to join us. Our guides are always wonderful. Just let us know, please.
