Ancient Secrets. Modern Science.
Lost Egypt has concluded its run at the Science Museum of Minnesota.
The hidden stories and artifacts of a lost civilization will help you unearth the secrets of ancient Egypt.
In Lost Egypt, you'll get a glimpse of the science and technology that modern archaeologists use to reconstruct life in ancient times. This hands-on exhibition features an authentic human mummy as well as animal mummies, scans, forensic facial reconstruction and—for the first time ever—life-size rapid prototypes, displaying a mummy in various stages of "unwrapping." You'll also find a re-creation of an Egyptian tomb and authentic art and artifacts from the daily life and funerary culture of ancient Egypt.
Explore how artifacts and other material remains contribute to our scientific understanding of past cultures, and see firsthand how science changes over time as new techniques are developed and new information is uncovered.
