04 Jan 2022
Manchester Museum’s landmark ‘Golden Mummies of Egypt’ exhibition opens in Shanghai, following huge success in Beijing
Developed and produced in partnership with Nomad Exhibitions, it arrived at the Beijing World Art Museum in August and has been visited by a staggering 150,000 people. It features more than 100 objects and eight mummies from the museum's extraordinary Egyptology collection and explores beliefs about the afterlife during an era when Egypt was part of the Greek and Roman worlds. It is now being hosted at the Meet You Museum, Shanghai, until the 20 April. It will then move to one more venue in China before returning to Manchester, where it will take centre stage in the museum's stunning new Exhibition Hall. A beautifully illustrated new book, ‘Golden Mummies of Egypt’, by Dr Campbell Price is available to buy online.
