The Royal Mummies Hall exhibited about 150 pieces, including the mummies as well as their coffins. For the first time, each mummy will be exhibited near the coffin where it was found. The mummies are now placed inside special halls below the main hall, symbolizing the “underworld” in which the royal mummies were found.
