Every now and then an interesting exhibition comes to town. This time it's the Egyptian Mummies From the British Museum - Exploring Ancient Lives. The exhibition has been on since the middle of November and is closing soon, Feb.18.
Last Friday I finally took the kids to see the exhibit. The downside of exhibitions from abroad is that they are very crowded, it's hard to believe that so many people would be interested in the ancient Egypt. It was quite obvious that most of the people were learning about mummies for the first time, it was taking them for ever to read all the information on the walls.
Before visiting the museum I read with Ania a few books on ancient Egypt. Thanks to that she was well prepared and even had some interesting questions.
W also watched two videos (both in Polish):
If you are in Taipei and have a bit of time in the next three weeks, be sure to drop by the Palace Museum to see the Egyptian Mummies.
