NEWS: Witte’s ‘Mummies’ a little freaky

The mummy of Nes-pa-qa-shuti is treated with respect. In the Victorian era, people would hold mummy unwrapping parties, experts say (Source: San Antonio Express News).

“Ralph Voight, the Witte Museum’s director of visitor services, had only one word for the opening of the highly-anticipated “Mummies of the World” exhibition: “gangbusters.”

That’s because at 3 p.m. with two hours to go on Saturday and with a line out the door, more than 1,600 visitors had come specifically for the new exhibit which runs through Jan. 27″ – via San Antonio Express News.
