Frost Science members are invited to be the first to experience our newest special exhibition, Mummies of the World: The Exhibition, during an exclusive members-only evening on Friday, May 26, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The exhibition features the mummified remains of 40 real humans and animals and 80 rare artifacts from across the globe.
