This is going to be amazing. The Golden Mummies of Egypt exhibition coming to the Buffalo Museum of Science. Buffalo is the first stop on the international tour.
The display will include a collection of over 100 treasures – seen for the first time ever in the United States.
The tour will make it’s first U.S. stop at the Buffalo Museum of Science on February 8th.
The exhibition consists of over 100 key objects from the Manchester Museum’s world-class collection, including eight mummies, as well as masks, coffins, jewelry and sculpture.

Tickets for the exhibition can be purchased here.
