|Milwaukee Museum to Host Mummies Exhibition |
The mummified remains of Johannes Orlovitz, one of the Vac mummies, is displayed at the new Mummies of the World exhibit at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. The Orlovits family was with a group of mummies found in 1994 in a forgotten church crypt in Vac, Hungary. The mummy will be part of the "Mummies of the World" exhibit, which is being called the largest traveling exhibition of mummies ever assembled. The 45 mummies and 95 artifacts in the show come from 15 museums in seven countries, said Marc Corwin, CEO of American Exhibitions Inc. The show will go on a three-year tour across the country.

MILWAUKEE (AP).- The largest traveling exhibition of mummies ever assembled is coming to Milwaukee later this year.
"Mummies of the World" will be at the Milwaukee Public Museum from Dec. 17 through May 30.
It features a collection of 150 real human and animal mummies and objects from South America, Europe, Asia, Oceania and Egypt.
The items include one of the oldest mummy infants ever discovered, a mummified family, a German nobleman discovered in a family crypt and Egyptian animal mummies. It will also explain how mummification occurs.
The show opened earlier this month at the California Science Center and will be touring the country for three years.
