We went today to see the Mummies, which were amazing and very eerie. The display for the mummies, the music, the low lighting and the lack of children in the exhibit was excellent. They also asked that everyone respect the dead, which resulted in everyone treating it like a library (which was perfect!). However, the museum itself was geared mostly... More

i didn't appreciate the high, high price of admission that hinged on a rather mundane mummy exhibit.

Viewed the Mummies of the world exhibit which was amazing and very informative. There is lots to see and do at the museum. A great deal of interactive exhibits. We visited on Sunday so it was nice and quiet. Great museum for kids

We love visiting museums and do so whenever there's a chance. There was a mummy exhibit while we were here and we took the opportunity to see it. That part of the trip was great. There was a lot of other interactive displays for the children too. They really enjoyed it. One problem: No where to eat or I should... More

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

Recently decided to check out the Buffalo Museum of Science and the Mummies of the World exhibit. I havent been to the museum in a long time so i was curious to see what has been updated. Disappointed the dinosaur hall is gone.... Our place in space on the fourth floor was depressing and tiny especially since two of the... More
