Among the Mummies are mummies of King Ramses the second, Queen Hatshepsut, King Thutmos the third and Queen Ahmos Nefertary. The Royal Mummies Hall is specially designed to display the mummies of ancient Egypt. The design and the underground location of Mummies aims to give the visitors the feeling of strolling down the Valley of kings where most of the mummies were originally resting. The Royal Mummies Hall exhibited about 150 pieces, including the mummies as well as their coffins. For the first time, each mummy will be exhibited near the coffin where it was found. The mummies are now placed inside special halls below the main hall, symbolizing the “underworld” in which the royal mummies were found.
