This spring, the Brooklyn Museum will be opening a new exhibit titled The Mummy Chamber, which will use ancient Egyptian artifacts from the museum’s holdings in order to showcase the ancient practice of mummification. The exhibit’s design is intended to demonstrate the various types of mummification practiced in ancient Egypt as well as how the socio-economic status of ancient Egyptians was reflected in their burial practices.
