When our loved ones pass on, we generally bid them goodbye, hold them fondly in memory and send them back into the earth’s loving arms. So why would someone want to preserve a dead body for many millennia, and how does that even work? Explore the answers to such questions at Cincinnati Museum Center’s new once-in-a-lifetime exhibit, featuring real mummies and artifacts, some dating back as far as 4,500 years. Discover how mummies are created, where they come from and who they are in an immersive, multi-media display. 


Through April 26. Non-member exhibition-only tickets: $19.50, $17.50 senior, $12.50 child. Cincinnati Museum Center, 1301 Western Ave., Queensgate, mummies.cincymuseum.org.
