We just toured the Mummies of the World Exhibit with the family & it was a great experience ! We had not been to the museum for many years and we were pleasantly surprised to see how it has changed and is a very different place. The entire mummy experience is a series of dimly lit & eerily quiet rooms... More

The mummy exhibit we went to see was called Mummies of the World. You can check it out online. It is absolutely awesome! It's no longer in Buffalo and I don't know where it's going next but if you get a chance to see it, do so. It's not just Egyptian mummies..

I went to the Buffalo Museum of Science today expressly to see the mummies. We went through the entire exhibit and enjoyed what we saw. However, I have two big complaints. The first is the Audio Tour. It included nothing new that wasn't already mentioned on the placards along the way. It also certainly was not over two hours of... More

I took my grandchildren to see the Mummies of the World exhibit. Exhibits change periodically. The museum offers interactive exhibits for all ages. It's a great way to spend an afternoon with or without children.

We went for the 'Mummies from around the world'. I was very interesting, we all enjoyed it. The whole museum had lots of interactive things for both adults and children.

There was no foot traffic, so we were lucky to spend as much time as we desired to enjoy the museum features. We rented the audio which enriched the experience.

Special Mummies attraction; done very well. A bit more for families with kids but we ducked in to get out of the rain and did very much enjoy the Mummy exhibit. This museum was very well organized and seemed like it would be great for families.
