The exhibit opens February 8 for a limited engagement at the museum.

"The exhibition consists of over 100 key objects from the Manchester Museum’s world-class collection, including eight mummies, as well as masks, coffins, jewelry and sculpture. Blending Egyptian, Roman and Greek imagery, the strikingly lifelike painted mummy portraits are among the most haunting images from the Ancient World," the Buffalo Museum of Science says about the exhibit on their website.

This is a separately ticketed event; tickets are $5 for museum members, $19 for adults, and $16 for children 2-17, students and military.
