We just finished producing three new spots for Unwrapping Egypt, specifically introducing Justine, a 3,000-year-old mummy!
THEMUSEUM has a new visitor who has travelled all the way from Egypt. While she has been staying at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) for some time, she will join us for the next few months as an integral part of the current Unwrapping Egypt exhibition and will stay up on our fourth floor.
Five strategies were identified by our organization at a spring strategy session concerning our future.
The volunteer of the month is: Sarah Lipkowski! Congratulations!
The burial tombs of Ancient Egypt are full of inscriptions from The Book of the Dead. This book contained many religious passages which described spells to ensure protection and safe passage for spirits while they journeyed towards the afterlife.
What caused King Tut’s final demise? While multiple theories have been put forth, two remain the most hotly debated: murder or illness.
When Howard Carter and George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon, began digging in the Valley of the Kings, they weren’t even sure if they would find anything. But they suspected there was a mummy named Tutankhamun waiting to be discovered.
The discovery of his perfectly intact tomb in 1922 was reported worldwide and sparked a revival and new interest in Egyptology. Commonly referred to as “the boy-king” of Ancient Egypt, his tomb and the story of its discovery is the main focus of our current exhibition: Unwrapping Egypt.
