Last Chance To See Mummies

"It's your last chance to see Mummies, our limited-time exhibition featuring mummies from ancient Peru and Egypt," the Field Museum says.

"Using non-invasive CT scanning, our scientists were able to see an Egyptian woman inside her intricate layered wrappings. At the time of her death, likely from tuberculosis, she was in her early 40s and had curly hair. Her gilded mask not only acted as an idealized portrait, but also ensured she kept her eyesight, hearing, taste, and smell in the afterlife."


"Get a rare look at 14 mummies and 130 objects from ancient Egypt and Peru before Mummies closes on April 28."
