Mummify: DIY

Children learning about the burial rituals of ancient Egypt by role-playing an embalming ceremonyThis is not your average mummification ceremony in a grand temple with qualified embalmers. This Do It Yourself mummification fast forwards 70 days of embalming into 45 minutes of afterlife antics.

If you dare, we welcome you to take part in this ancient ritual. Will you be the embalmer in guard of the canopic jars, the priest with protective amulets, or will you have the tools for removing the bodily organs. Watch out or you might be the one to be mummified!
