Mummies Night: 100 Years of Mummies!

Sat Oct 26, 2019
4:00pm to 7:00pm
4 and up
Free

The Oriental Institute hosts a special event for its centennial year and its 20th annual family Halloween party. Guests are encouraged to wear costumes while they enjoy mummy tours, stories, and activities all night long!

Guests can mummify a simulated mummy, take a mummy tour, or hear a mummy-tale. Make mummy crafts, compete in a Mummy Wrap Race. In the galleries, King Tut’s monumental 17-foot-tall statue and a 40-ton Assyrian winged bull will lend a photogenic background for witches, vampires, monsters, and princesses. 

Mummy Tours occur every half hour throughout the event.

Tickets are free, but space is limited, so guests are encouraged to reserve tickets ahead of time.
