22 December 2009 to 4 April 2010 (10:00am - 6:00pm)

Quest for Immortality – The World of Ancient Egypt offers an insight to the ancient Egyptian’s attitude to life and the afterlife, and the preparations they made to ensure their transition from earthly existence to immortality. Discover the Egyptians’ means of equipping the dead – through mummification, provision of sustenance, magic and ritual – and explore the evolution of their burial rites as well as the changing relationship between man and ritual through time.

Learn more about the religious and cultural beliefs behind ancient Egyptian mummification techniques, burial rituals and the civilization’s desire for immortality. In this exhibition, feast your eyes on antique jewelry, pottery, literature, coffins and Cartonnages.
