Look­ing at the re­mark­able rit­u­als of the an­cient Egyp­tians about death and af­ter­life the ex­hi­bi­tion con­tains more than 250 ar­chae­o­log­i­cal items and nine hu­man and an­i­mal mum­mies which are more than 2,000 years old. These ob­jects and mum­mies are on loan from the world-renowned Ri­jksmu­seum van Oud­he­den (na­tional mu­seum of an­tiq­ui­ties) in Lei­den (the Nether­lands), and be­long to one of the ten most im­por­tant Egyp­tian col­lec­tions in the world.
