The mysteries of ancient Egypt have intrigued young and old since the first discoveries of this fascinating civilisation. Egypt: Beyond the Tomb brings the ancient Egyptian world of the dead to life right here at the Auckland Museum.

Featuring in this breathtaking exhibition are the 2700-year-old mummy of Keku and her intricately decorated sarcophagus (coffin) - plus over 200 other ancient Egyptian burial treasures.

Experience how researchers have pieced together Keku’s story from the diverse clues that her civilisation left behind. Follow her preparations for death and her perilous journey through the underworld towards the eternal afterlife. See mummification tools, amulets to protect the dead on their underworld journey, and other rare and beautiful artefacts.
