Egypt, Land of Discoveries at Bunkamura Museum of Art

10:00–22:00・May 12, 2021–Jun 27, 2021・Bunkamura The Museum 2-24-1 Dogenzaka, Shibuya-ku

The museum resumes its operation from Jun 1. To strengthen COVID-19 measures, all customers will need to make a date and time reservation prior to visiting.

This exhibition delves into all aspects of the lives of the ancient Egyptians, from their aesthetics to their medical knowledge. Over 200 objects will be displayed from one of the largest Ancient Egypt collections in Europe, but of particular note are the mummy cases, which will be displayed together and in the upright standing position. They are rarely showcased in this manner, making this exhibition a great opportunity to view them. The exhibition also incorporates modern technology, displaying for the first time the results of CT scans of mummified bodies. A fascinating exhibition with a touch of the macabre that might just be gruesome enough to be of interest to all ages.
