I want my mummy! Spain's first-ever mummy museum opens

Spain, Quinto de Ebro
June 11, 2018 at 04:45 GMT -00:00 · Published

Spain's first ever mummy museum opened last week in Quinto de Ebro of the Zaragoza province. Footage from Sunday captured visitors' first impressions.

The permanent exhibition will display 15 mummified bodies from the 18th or 19th century found at the church back in 2011 during restoration work.

The mummies are in a remarkable state of preservation, with some even possessing hair, nails and eyes.

Researchers are hoping that the new museum will provide an insight into life in the past, including social status, eating habits and population demographics.

Esta exposición permanente consta de 15 cuerpos momificados originarios de los siglos XVIII y XIX, que fueron encontrados en una iglesia en 2011 durante los trabajos de restauración.

Las momias se encuentran en un excelente estado de conservación, y algunas incluso poseen cabello, uñas y ojos.

Los investigadores esperan que este nuevo museo proporcione una visión detallada de la vida en el pasado, incluyendo la estratificación social, los hábitos alimenticios y la demografía de la población.
