This spring, visitors to The Natural History Museum at Tring will be able to visit a new free temporary exhibition and discover what lies inside animal mummies from Ancient Egypt.

The Ancient Egyptians preserved a wide variety of animals, from cats to crocodiles, giving them as gifts to the gods.

Within this new exhibition you will be able to examine animal mummies and see how modern technology allows museum scientists to study them. Through scans and X-rays, reveal the untold stories of these revered creatures and even try out an interactive scanning machine for yourself.

The exhibition includes specimens from the Tring’s own collection as well as some items on loan from Manchester Museum.

Tring Natural History Museum, Akeman Street, Tring, Saturday, March 14, to Sunday, October 18. Details: 020 7942 6171
