Venue : Fukuoka City Museum When : Apr 10th - Jun 27th 2021, 9:30am - 5:30pm

A special event taking place at the Fukuoka City Museum will explore 42 mummies from different corners of the world, including South America, Egypt, Europe, Oceania, and Japan. The event will explore the differences in how life and death is viewed across cultures, and why mummification played a role in these societies.

The event will also include two special lectures which look into the history and the latest research regarding mummies. Attending the special lectures is free but does require advance application, which can be arranged via the official event website here.

Adult admission to the event is priced at 1600 yen.

Getting there

The Fukuoka City Museum is located around 15 minutes on foot from the Fukuoka City Subway's Nishijin Station, served by the Kuko Line.

Bus services are also available from the Nishitetsu Tenjin Bus Terminal to the museum area, and the journey takes around 20 minutes. Alight at either the Fukuoka Tower Stop, the Hakubutsukan Minami Guchi Stop, or the Hakubutsukan Kitaguchi Stop (bus numbers 302, 306, 300, 301, and 303 will all get you there), and then the museum is around 5 minutes away on foot.
