To love life so much you continue after it ends – that is what mummification was all about. The afterlife held no mysteries for the ancient Egyptians, who had complex rituals to help the dead find their way to the beyond. At the Cinquantenaire Museum you can discover the stories behind the sarcophagus, the burials rites and death masks. From the objects that accompanied the deceased to watching experts restore a sarcophagus, the ‘twelve hours of the night’ tour is an exhibition you’ll be dead set on seeing.
📅 Every weekend from Thurs 15th October 2015 – Wed 20th April 2016
