Secrets of the Silk Road - Time is Limited!

By
Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc

Only 3 days left to see the Secrets of the Silk Road Mummies at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archeaology and Anthroplogy.

The Secrets of the Silk Road Exhibition at the University of Penn Museum is currently on view through March 28th but the mummies will only be available through Tuesday March 15th.  The display includes 125 specially chosen objects providing a great overview of the history, cultures, and customs along the Silk Road.  All the items came from several archeolgical sites in the Tarim Basin, the center of the legendary route.

After Tuesday, it will be necessary to return the Mummies to China so the museum is offering extended hours through Tuesday to provide ample opportunity to see them before they are gone.  The remaining rarely seen items will be on display through March 28th.

Be sure to take some time, visit the museum, and see the exhibit before time runs out!

Wow...wish I could see this exhibit.  I used to live in Pennsylvania...this is a great exhibit for Penn State to have the honor of exhibiting.

That sounds like a wonderful exhibit! We had an Egyptian exhibit a few years ago here and I dragged my husband to see that. Beautiful! The mummies might not be beautiful, but they'd be something to see!

Nettie, Peg - Thanks for the comments.  It was a great exhibit to visit.  China had requested the return of the mummies before the exhibit moved to the East Coast so it was great to have them for even this brief period.
