The Field Museum's latest exhibition examines the ancient tradition of mummification under new light. In 2014, the institution received a temporary, on-site CT scanner, allowing researchers to peer into these tombs without touching and potentially damaging the fragile artifacts inside. Those findings inspired this exhibition, which focuses primarily on ancient Egyptian and Peruvian mummies. In total, 22 mummies—14 humans and eight animals—from the museum’s collection will be on display, plus two lifelike, 3-D renderings of Egyptian mummies.
