In collaboration with the British Museum and ArtScience Museum Singapore, you can now experience the journey to the Egyptian afterlife and unwrap the 3,000 year-old mystery of a Priest mummy called Nesperennub. This is the first time the exhibition titled Mummy: Secrets of the Tomb is held in Singapore and Southeast Asia that will reveal the secrets of the mysterious Egyptian burial practices and mummification process. I have seen similar exhibition, Quest for immortality – The world of Ancient Egypt back in 2010 but I find this exhibition presented in a different way.
With cutting edge CT scanning technology and computer visualisation techniques, experts are able to see inside the mummy, without disturbing the exquisite cartonnage or delicate material surrounding the mummy. Therefore, visitors can enjoy the findings through extraordinary virtual reality experience in 3D. Each of us will receive a pair of 3D glasses prior watching the film and to be kept as souvenir. Having said that, the state-of-the art technology able to reconstruct how Nesperennub may have looked too. The duration of the film takes about 13 mins before proceed to the exhibition artifacts.
