It's fascinating to observe how ancient cultures buried their dead. And mummies are just awesome.

Its very insight full to see how some of the practices used thousands of years ago, still are relevant to modern times to some extent

I grew up in Brooklyn and I never knew. I have been to the great museums in the world. This is one of them. Much better presentation than the British Museum.

Comprehensive and beautiful! I have left The Mummy Chamber with a greatly improved understanding of ancient Egyptian burial and the ritual surrounding it.

I loved it ! My favourite thing was the mummies. I also loved the jewelry and the ancient art. I loved the amazing sculptures. I am 8 years old.

an incredibly beautiful and arousing collection of ancient works that take me back to a glamorous and barbaric moment in history that is rarely recreated with such splendor

In reference to roxanne's comment, it's true that it's not exactly considered respectful to exhume the bodies of people's relatives and put them on display, but then it's not respectful to invade people's privacy, write your opinions of them and publish them widely after your subject's death, and that's what a biography is. Respectful or disrespectful, history is history and learning is learning.

Just as amazing as I remember when I was a wee one. Coming back after I haven't seen it for ten years I can still say I find myself just as fascinated at the ancient history as I was in the past.
