Explore the finest artefacts the world has to offer at this highly-anticipated exhibition from the British Museum in London! Come face to face with the “unlucky mummy” falsely rumoured to have sunk the Titanic, marvel at gold jewellery from ancient Mesopotamian graves and be fascinated by the magical transformation mask from the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America.
Featuring stunning relics from ancient civilisations and treasures spanning Africa, Oceania and the Middle East, as well as Europe, Asia and the Americas, this extensive collection encompasses over two million years of abundant culture and history. Closer to home, the exhibition also includes items from the personal collection of Sir Stamford Raffles, such as a Javanese mask and a kris and scabbard dating back to the early 19th century. Discover these Treasures of the World and more at the National Museum from December 2015 to May 2016!
The exhibition is divided into 7 sections:
- The Middle East
- The Americas
- Today’s Treasures
