Mummies from Egyptian collection of the British Museum to be exhibited in Singapore

A new exhibition from the famed Egyptian collection of the British Museum will be featured at Marina Bay Sands' ArtScience Museum from April 27.

The exhibition will have more than 100 artifacts and six mummies in total. Among the artifacts is a statuette of the Egyptian god Amun-Ra in bronze from 664-305 BC.

Visitors can also look forward to watching a 3D film capturing the virtual unwrapping of an Egyptian mummy, with the centrepiece being a mummified temple priest who lived 3,000 years ago and died at about the age of 40.

There will also be an interactive embalming workshop and other hands-on activities. Tickets go on sale from April 1 and more information can be found at
