Unravel an Exciting Adventure!
Now open in the Fleet's IMAX Dome Theater: MUMMIES: Secrets of the Pharaohs. Journey to the royal tombs of Egypt and explore the history of ancient Egyptian society as told through the mummies of the past. Narrated by Christopher Lee, MUMMIES tells the story of one of the greatest archaeological finds in modern history: the late 19th century discovery of a cache of 40 royal mummies, including the legendary pharaoh Rameses the Great! Can knowledge gained from ancient mummy DNA advance modern medical science?
