“MUMMIES in BRUGES – Secrets of Ancient Egypt” Unique exhibition with real mummies in Bruges! Visit the temporary exhibition “Mummies in Bruges – Secrets of Ancient Egypt” at the Oud Sint-Jan Exhibition Centre in Bruges. This fascinating exhibition highlights 3 themes: life, death and the afterlife. The exhibition comprises 9 human and animal mummies from Ancient Egypt that are more than 2000 years old, plus more than 200 objects (likewise from Ancient Egypt), including some that have never been shown before. These objects and mummies belong to the collection of the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden [National Museum of Antiquities] in Leiden (Netherlands), which boasts one of the 5 most important and biggest Egyptology collections in Europe. Large information panels and videos throughout the exhibition provide explanations on the remarkable rituals of the Ancient Egyptians concerning death and their unshakable belief in the afterlife. For children (8 to 12) in particular, there is a quest with Dummie the Mummy, known from the eponymous children’s book series. Dummie the Mummy guides the young public through this exhibition with the help of a colouring and activity book. Crack the mummy code and learn to write your name in hieroglyphs!
