Be Curious Exhibit Gallery

Museum's Mummy Cartonnage, Inner Coffin

Now open, the Egypt: Be Curious exhibition showcases the Museum’s own collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts.

Discover how the Museum received these special gifts including the mummy, Nakhte-Bastet-Iru, and the exciting research that has helped us learn about her life. The collection includes reconstructions of Nakhte-Bastet-Iru’s skull and face to see what she would have looked like many centuries ago.

This exhibit highlights the importance of artistic objects, such as jewelry, funerary masks and statuettes, by exploring their role in the beliefs and elaborate funerary practices of the ancient Egyptians. Viewers discover what artifacts were used many years ago in worship, funeral processes, celebrations, and mummification.

This exhibit is included with general admission.
