Mummies – Secrets of Life

It was a sensation when, in 2004, twenty mummies that were believed to have been lost were rediscovered in the depots of Mannheim's Reiss-Engelhorn museums. Together with numerous other mummies from diverse epochs and cultures, they were first presented in a special exhibition in 2007 before being sent on a journey around the world. Now, after two continents, seven countries and some three million visitors, they are returning to Mannheim and will be displayed in the spectacular special exhibition "Mummies - Secrets of Life" along with the latest research results and numerous other mummies from Europe.
