Mummies in Assen

At the Drentes Museum there is currently an exhibit on mummies. Mummies are not confined to Egypt and the exhibition (with information panels in English as well as Dutch) sheds interesting light on attitudes towards death.

The exhibition of corpses can be both controversial and a bit gruesome as some of the mummies look as if they have escaped from the set of a horror movie.
