A special event taking place at the Fukuoka City Museum will explore 42 mummies from different corners of the world, including South America, Egypt, Europe, Oceania, and Japan. The event will explore the differences in how life and death is viewed across cultures, and why mummification played a role in these societies.
The event will also include two special lectures which look into the history and the latest research regarding mummies. Attending the special lectures is free but does require advance application, which can be arranged via the official event website here.
Adult admission to the event is priced at 1600 yen.
