The mummies have arrived!

With a special security detail that included Orlando Police and black-suited agents, the mummies were transported to Orlando Science Center amid a press conference that included remarks from Michel Champagne, Incoming Board Chair for Orlando Science Center and Vice President at Bright House Networks; Orlando City Commissioner Robert Stuart; and Marcus Corwin, President of American Exhibitions, Inc. and Producer of Mummies of the World: The Exhibition. The presentation concluded with the official signing over of the mummies between Michel and Marcus.

The nationally recognized Mummies of the World: The Exhibition will make its debut at Orlando Science Center on Saturday, June 13. It is the largest exhibition of real mummies and related artifacts ever assembled, showcasing a collection of naturally and intentionally preserved mummies. This compelling collection, presented with reverence and dignity, includes ancient mummies and significant artifacts from around the world.
