Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya is presenting a new exhibition, ‘Mummy: An Unsolved Mystery – Conserving Mumbai’s Egyptian Treasures’ that will enlighten our visitors about the importance of preservation and conservation of world cultural heritage of the city.

Along with the Mummy, the Museum has a few but historically significant Egyptian antiquities in its collection. This collection is unique in its nature and perhaps the only Egyptian collection in the city of Mumbai. Keeping in mind the conservation needs of this collection, we have decided to bring them out to display for the first time and introduce the people of Mumbai to the collection and its conservation requirements. We intend to conserve this precious collection with the guidance of Organic Artefacts Conservation experts from the British Museum. The exhibition will be open to public for viewing from 27th October to 4th January 2017.
