Manchester Museum’s historic ‘Golden Mummies of Egypt’ exhibition to open in Shenzhen
Golden Mummies of Egypt – the Manchester Museum’s first-ever international traveling exhibition – will open at the Nanshan Museum in Shenzhen on Friday 24 June.
Golden Mummies, developed and produced in partnership with Nomad Exhibitions, explores beliefs about the afterlife at a time when Egypt was part of the Greek and Roman worlds.
It offers unrivaled access to the Manchester Museum’s Egyptian and Sudanese collections and features over 100 artefacts and eight mummies.
The show has already been a huge success in Beijing and Shanghai, attracting over 250,000 visitors.
After their time in Shenzhen, Golden Mummies will return to the Manchester Museum, part of the University of Manchester, taking center stage in a brand new 420m2 exhibition hall from February 2023.
The exhibition hall is part of the museum’s ambitious £15 million transformation project. When the museum reopens to the public, ambitious shows will engage with big ideas, global challenges, and local actions.
