Golden Mummies of Egypt exhibition open in Buffalo

The international tour is making its first stop at the Buffalo Museum of Science, displaying a rich Egyptian collection for the first time in the United States.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Golden Mummies of Egypt exhibition has arrived in Buffalo, showcasing over a hundred Egyptological treasures to the Queen City.

The international tour is making its first U.S. stop at the Buffalo Museum of Science on Saturday, displaying a rich Egyptian collection.

Over the years the University of Manchester in the U.K. has acquired thousands of objects from archaeological excavations. This traveling exhibit will feature key objects from the Manchester Museum's collection, displaying eight mummies, as well as a variety of masks, coffins and jewelry and more.

“The people of Western New York deserve world-class science and cultural experiences, and we are honored and excited to be the debuting venue for this rich and fascinating touring exhibition,” says Buffalo Museum of Science president and CEO, Marisa Wigglesworth. “We’re grateful for the generous support of our longtime partner M&T Bank for their help in bringing this experience to Buffalo.”

Tickets for the exhibition can be purchased here.
