    Part exhibition, and part working laboratory, a glass-enclosed conservation lab brings you right into a museum conservator’s world. See the tools of the trade and watch as conservators work on a wide array of Egyptian objects including rare paintings, ancient funerary objects, and, of course, mummies! Enjoy this unique opportunity to follow conservators as they protect, restore, and preserve pieces of ancient Egyptian history in this 2,000 square foot exhibition.

    Visitors can look in to see a range of artifacts in various stages of conservation, and watch as members of the Penn Museum Conservation Department examine, research, clean, repair, and document a variety of ancient Egyptian objects, including painted wooden coffins, cartonnage, animal mummies, and human mummies.
