Get To Know Your Mummy

Visit Stockholm in 2014 and unwrap an Egyptian mummy!

The Medelhavsmuseet is digitising its mummy collection to allow visitors to explore the exhibits for themselves.

Visitors will be able to zoom in on sarcophagus carvings before peeling off virtual layers of the mummy's wrapping and exploring the artefacts buried with the body.

"The technology will enable our visitors to gain a deeper understanding of the men and women inside the mummy wrappings," said Elna Nord, producer of the exhibition. "Layer by layer, the visitor can unwrap the mummy and gain knowledge of the individual's sex, age, living conditions and beliefs."

You can enjoy a trip to Stockholm and the Ice Hotel with The Mighty Fine Company.
