What secrets do mummies hold? Find out with Mummies of the World: The Exhibition. This traveling exhibit is “digging in” to showcase human and animal mummified remains from every region of the world, including Europe, South America and ancient Egypt. “Physical anthropologists can extract info from an individual and reconstruct the things about their lives — even if there wasn’t any writing or tombstone that accompanied them,” says Dr. Dirk Van Tuerenhout, curator of anthropology at hosting venue Houston Museum of Natural Science. “It’s a CSI-like investigation, and it’s really interesting.” Expect state-of-the-art multimedia, hands-on interactive stations and cutting-edge 3-D animation to take visitors on a 4,500-year journey to explore the mummies’ history and origins as well as how they were created, both through natural and intentional practices.

9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Sundays. Opens September 24 through May 29, 2017. 5555 Hermann Park. For information, call 713-639-4629 or visit hmns.org. $12 to $30.
