In the Artifact Lab: Conserving Egyptian Mummies

May 05, 2013


The Penn Museum invites you behind the velvet ropes with its new project, In the Artifact Lab: Conserving Egyptian Mummies. Part exhibition, and part working laboratory, a glass-enclosed conservation lab brings you right into a museum conservator's world. See the tools of the trade and watch as conservators work on a wide array of Egyptian objects including rare paintings, ancient funerary objects, and, of course, mummies! Enjoy this unique opportunity to follow conservators as they protect, restore, and preserve pieces of ancient Egyptian history in this 2,000 square foot exhibition.


Free with Penn Museum admission
