The cost of visting was S$15 per person per exhibition but if you purchase a ticket for both then it was S$24 each, however, as we had our employment and dependants pass we got a concession and it cost us just S$40 for the 2 of us - bargain
Mummy:Secrets of the tomb runs from 27 April - 4 Nov 13 and is presented by the British Museum. You first watched a 3D film narrated by Patrick Stewart (Star Trek!). This shows the history of the mummy of the 3000 year old priest Nesperennub. It explains the hieroglyphics on the outer case, injuries on the body (although cause of death is unknown), gifts left on the body and reasoning behind them etc. After the film you are the able to view the highly decorated cases holding the mummies - 6 in total including a cat! plus other treasures.
