BOCA RATON, Fla., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- American Exhibitions, Inc., in association with the Reiss-Engelhorn Museum of Mannheim, Germany, announced that the blockbuster exhibit Mummies of the World: The Dream of Eternal Life, the largest traveling exhibition of mummies and artifacts, will tour science centers and museums in the United States for a limited three year tour commencing July 2010.

"Never in history has there been such an important collection of mummies and artifacts," said Marcus W. Corwin, President and CEO of American Exhibitions, Inc. "This blockbuster exhibit is poised to bring record-breaking attendance to museums in its limited United States tour."

Dignified, reverent and scholarly, this unique collection brilliantly enhances our educational, scientific and cultural landscape, as mummification provides a window into the lives, history and cultures of every major region of the world.

"The largest mummy exhibition worldwide will include 70 human, animal and reptilian mummies gathered from the four corners of the world," said Dr. Wilfried Rosendahl, Curator of the Reiss-Engelhorn Museum, Mannheim, Germany. "Visitors will embark on an exciting and historical journey around the globe, with mummies representing several continents and spanning thousands of years."

Unlike exhibits which feature only Egyptian mummies, this remarkable and compelling exhibition demonstrates the different processes of mummification and serves to educate visitors as to their respective cultures. The collection includes ancient mummies and important artifacts from Asia, Oceania, South America and Europe, as well as ancient Egypt, and demonstrates how mummification can be a natural process; one which occurs in hot, dry desert sands, in eternal ice, in moors and bogs and even, amazingly, in dry cellars.

"Using state-of-the-art scientific and forensic research, the secrets of the mummies are now revealed. Sensational historic research crowns this impressive multi-media exhibition and affords a fascinating cultural and historical insight into people from ancient civilization," said Dr. Heather Gill-Robinson, renowned anthropologist. "This exhibition offers a unique opportunity for Americans to learn about the lifestyle, health and culture of ancient people from around the world."

Why do mummies of the ancient and modern worlds fascinate us so? "It is because every one of us shares a yearning for what has come before us," said James Delay, Vice President of American Exhibitions, Inc. "Natural mummification is so rare and is what elevates this exhibition to an educational level unparalleled to the current scientific and museum arena."

Mummies are the single direct archive to the human species, the study of which provides great information and data in the context of archaeology, anthropology and science. All mummies in the exhibition originate from established and respected European museum and university collections. The exhibition was prepared in accordance with all recommendations of the International Council of Museums' (ICOM) code of ethics. The exhibition is presented with respect and dignity, acknowledging the interests of the social, ethical and religious groups from which the mummies originate.

Mummies of the World: The Dream of Eternal Life is presented by American Exhibitions, Inc. in association with the Reiss-Engelhorn Museum, Mannheim, Germany. The exhibition is not merely a presentation of mummies; it originated from the scientific work of the German Mummy Project. The German Mummy Project is an international, multidisciplinary collaboration of specialists from 15 different institutes in 7 countries. The U.S. tour shall be limited to 7 markets for which museums in Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles and St. Louis have expressed interest. The tour dates and sponsors shall be announced shortly.

American Exhibitions, Inc. is a producer of museum-quality touring exhibitions for science centers and museums whose mission is to produce blockbuster exhibits that physically, intellectually and emotionally excite, educate and engage those who experience them. As a member of the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) and the American Association of Museums (AAM), American Exhibitions, Inc. is one of the largest, privately-funded exhibitioners in the United States.
