“Mummies of the World” will be at the Milwaukee Public Museum from Dec. 17 through May 30.
It features a collection of 150 real human and animal mummies and objects from South America, Europe, Asia, Oceania and Egypt.
The items include one of the oldest mummy infants ever discovered, a mummified family, a German nobleman discovered in a family crypt and Egyptian animal mummies. It will also explain how mummification occurs.
The show opened earlier this month at the California Science Center and will be touring the country for three years.
