Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives

A handful of mummies have cozied up to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts for a few months.

The exhibition, Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives, will be the mummies’ first North American exposition, following “tremendous success in Australia, Hong Kong and Taiwan,” according to the MMFA.

As per the press release, the British Museum has reconstructed the lives of six individuals who lived along the Nile from about 900 BC to AD 180.

On Wednesdays, the MMFA offers $12 admission and extended hours.

If one of them gets up and starts haunting you, however, that’s NOT part of the exhibition.

Where: Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, 380, Sherbrooke Street O,

McKibbin’s Irish Pub Hooley Night

McKibbin’s Irish Pub hosts their “Hooley Night” tonight on their third-floor dance club.
