Explore a walk-in tomb recreation and over 20 mummies and coffins, from Pre-Dynastic Egypt to Pre-Incan Peru, at the Natural History Museum. An export from Chicago's Field Musum, the exhibit injects a bit of modern technology with CT scans, 3D-printed casts of bones, forensically reconstructed sculptural busts and interactive touch tables for digitally unwrapping mummies. To celebrate the new exhibit, the museum will stay open until midnight on opening day, Friday, September 18.
