From December 2006 to April 2007, Egypt: Beyond the Tomb recreates the ancient Egyptian world of the dead right here at Te Papa. The exhibition follows Keku, an Egyptian woman who lived 2700 years ago, as she makes her perilous journey after death through the underworld towards an eternal afterlife.

The exhibition featured a breadth of burial treasures, from the 2700-year-old coffins and mummy of Keku to mummification tools and amulets.

Step into the world of the ancient Egyptians, where life exists beyond the tomb.
