Success of Mummies Exhibition at Bowers Museum,0,296790.story?coll=mmx-celebrity_heds
This is a actually an article about public reactions to the Tutankhamun exhibition, but a couple of lines at the end of the article compare it with the exhibition also currently showing, at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana: "Mummies: Death and the Afterlife in Ancient Egypt is a collection of 126 objects and 14 mummies being shown for the first time in this country. 'That's what puts our exhibit on par with LACMA's: the mummies,' Bowers spokesman Rick Weinberg said. Even without the publicity of the King Tut show, the exhibit has sold more than 40,000 tickets since opening in April".
