Eternal Life: Exploring Ancient Egypt

Six Egyptian mummies and up to 200 invaluable Egyptian historical pieces await at the Hong Kong Science Museum for a very special exhibition.

Sponsored by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the highlight of the exhibition are six Egyptian mummies that have been dated between 3,000 and 1,800 years old. Alongside the mummies are more than 200 invaluable historical objects from Egypt. There are digital displays of the non-invasive CT processes that archaeologists use and discover the diet, state of health, mummification process and religious practices of the ancient Egyptians.

The Hong Kong Science Museum has designed and developed a multimedia programme and a series of interactive exhibits using the latest technologies, such as 3D projection mapping, virtual reality and holograms, to decipher the myths behind the statues and symbols, and to comprehensively illustrate the technological development of ancient Egypt.
