The Naprstek Museum in Prague started yesterday an exhibition of a unique set of ancient Egyptian mummies, accompanied by the results of the latest research on them, the first in 40 years.

Besides the mummies, the exhibition also features objects documenting the civilian and spiritual life of ancient Egyptians. It will last until end-September.

The museum started a systematic research on the ancient Egyptian mummies in 2009 and it will continue for another three years.
