Pharaohs’ Golden Parade

3 April 2021

The world eagerly anticipates the exit of the 22 royal mummies from the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, heading to their permanent residence in the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (NMEC) in Fostat.

That will be done through a huge parade of 22 royal mummies of the ancient kings of Egypt.

Twenty-two royal mummies and coffins will be transported, and 17 royal coffins, dating back to the 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th Dynasties. 18 of the mummies are for kings, while 4 belong to queens.
Among the mummies transferred are the mummies of King Ramses II; King Seqenenre Tao; King Thutmose III; King Seti I; Queen Hatshepsut; and Queen Meritamen, the wife of King Amenhotep I; and Queen Ahmose Nefertari, the wife of King Ahmose I.

The royal mummies will be transferred to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in a large march, in preparation for the opening of three halls that include the central exhibition hall and the mummies hall.
