Inside two wooden boxes, a treasure trove of information lies enshrouded. Two women—one rich, one poor—wrapped in linen and enclosed in painted coffins hold the secrets of 3,000 years. Who were they? How did they live? How did they die?

In Egyptian Mummies, their mysteries are revealed. Through the magic of modern technology, the Museum and the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center take a look inside these two mummies using X rays and CT scans. Find out what lies beneath the linen wrappings and discover the ancient practices that have preserved these human remains through millennia.
