See “Accidental Mummies” for Less with Dodge

Dodge has a proud history of supporting cultural and educational community activities, sponsoring exhibits like “Splendors of Ancient Egypt,” “Van Gogh: Face to Face,” and “On the Edge: Contemporary Art.” This year, the company brought the very cool exhibit “Accidental Mummies of Guanajuato” to the Detroit Science Center. The 10,000 square-foot exhibition space showcases 36 mummies on loan from the Museo de las Momias de Guanajuato in the city of Guanajuato, Mexico, giving a fascinating look into a mysterious natural mummification process that no one fully understands — as well as insight into the lives of the people who lived in Guanajuato more than 100 years ago.

This is the first time any of these accidental mummies have been seen outside of Mexico. And the good news for anyone living in or traveling to Detroit is that Dodge, Ram, Chrysler, and Jeep drivers can simply show their keys to get a discounted entry price of $19.95. But don’t dawdle — “Accidental Mummies of Guanajuato” will only be on display at the Detroit Science Center until January 31st before moving on to six other North American cities.
