Meet Ancient Egypt


21 December 2023 – 10 March 2024

“Meet Ancient Egypt – Mummy, Life, and Death in Ancient Egypt” just opened in Shanghai. The exhibition is a collaboration project between the Meet You Museums in China, The Museums and special collections of the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, Comediarting and Expona. For the first time an important selection of the Egyptian-collection of the University of Aberdeen will be presented in China. The exhibition has been developed under the scientific supervision of the Roemer and Pelizaeus Museum in Hildesheim/Germany.

This unique exhibition takes a close-up, scientific look at the process of mummification and embalmment as practiced by the ancient Egyptians in their quest for immortality.

While the concept of eternal life is fundamental to many religions, it is the interpretation and practices of the ancient Egyptians in preparing the deceased for the life to come that is still so fascinating today, in particular the practices of mummification and embalmment.

The international exhibition was developed in collaboration with Contemporanea Progetti toured in Europe, North America and China and was concluded successfully.
