Travel: Bowers Museum Mummies of the World Exhibit

For more information on this exhibit, click here

Photos weren't allowed in the exhibit, so I could only take a photo of the posters

The  Bowers Museum is home to an outstanding restaurant, Tangata

Now through September 5, 2016, the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, California has a fascinating mummies exhibit.  Until I attended this exhibit, I thought of mummies as exclusively Egyptian.  However, I learned there are naturally occurring mummifies and that mummification was a ritual in some South American countries.   This exhibit isn’t for those who are squeamish, but it’s absolutely spellbinding for those of us who aren’t.  I absolutely recommend seeing this temporary exhibit!
