Mummy: Secrets of the Tomb at the ArtScience Museum.

I have always been interested in mummies and ancient Egypt and my heart skipped a beat when I found out I almost missed out on the Mummy Exhibit at the ArtScience Museum. I have been to 2 different exhibits and I just could not get enough of it!
Click here for the mummy exhibit at Singapore National Museum.

What is so special about the Mummy: Secrets of the Tomb It has 3D rendering of unwrapping a mummy!


We arrived at the museum almost to 10am, just in time for the video to start. It’s AWESOME okay! I also give extra bonus for producers including icky wet sounds every time layer of muscles were exposed. It’s basically an autopsy of a 3000 year old mummified Egyptian Priest and it shows how the experts discover the secrets of the mysterious Egyptian burial practices and mummification process in detail.


Just a heads up, no photography was allowed and don’t be sneaky about it. Just enjoy the exhibit that holds over 100 artefacts, including six exceptionally preserved mummies from the extensive and famed Egyptian collection of the British Museum.

You know the infamous removal of the brain through the nose? Well, for the first time, I get to see the actual tool used up close. I didn’t think it was a big deal until I saw it. It was bigger than I thought it would be. Urgh!

Anyways, generally, the exhibit was interesting although can’t be compared with the exhibit held at Singapore National Museum years ago because of the space and amount of artefacts and mummies. BUT, it definitely makes it up with the 3D film.

There is a photo booth at the entrance but since we came so early and the photographer was late, we missed the chance. So we just take random photos by ourselves then!








Exhibition opens until 4 November 2013 and for more details, go to http://www.marinabaysands.com/Singapore-Museum/Whats-On/
