The Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art is hosting Mummy Day on Saturday, Nov. 5.

“Tutu is a favorite of many visitors, from schoolchildren to adults,” said Dane Pollei, Director and Chief Curator of the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art. “The process of mummification is intriguing and interesting, and we are excited to share more information about Tutu and our collection at Mummy Day.”
