Mummies

Secrets of life

from November 11th 2021 to May 1st 2022

Mummies are considered fascinating biohistorical archives of life. Through their natural or artificial preservation, they offer a unique insight into the world of animals and humans from the time of the dinosaurs to the present day. In an impressive special exhibition, visitors are invited to get to know a wide variety of mummies and scientific methods and literally look over the shoulders of mummy researchers as they work. In addition to a replica of the famous mammoth mummy "Dima", there are also original mummies with many exciting stories and secrets to discover.

The exhibition was conceived by the Reiss-Engelhorn Museums, Mannheim.
