Mummies Night: 100 Years of Mummies!

Join us for Mummies Night in the Oriental Institute's Centennial Year! We’ll be celebrating 100 years of mummies, tombs, and magic at our 20th annual family Halloween party. Costumes encouraged!

Join us for a special Mummies Night for the OI’s Centennial Year! We’ll be celebrating 100 years of mummies, tombs, and magic for our 20th annual family Halloween party. Costumes encouraged!

Recommended for children ages 4 and up, accompanied by an adult.

Mummify our simulated mummy, take a mummy tour, or hear a mummy-tale. Make mummy crafts, compete in a Mummy Wrap Race, and catch a family photo at our Photo Op. Play the game many a mummy has taken to his own tomb—Senet. And as always, in the galleries, King Tut’s monumental 17-foot-tall statue and our 40-ton Assyrian winged bull will lend a photogenic background for witches, vampires, monsters, princesses, or whatever your costume.

Mummy Tours occur every half hour throughout the event. Tickets are free, but space is limited! Reserve your tickets ahead of time here (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/mummies-night-mummy-tours-tickets-67993266691). A limited number of tickets will be available onsite.

Mummy Simulations also occur every half hour throughout the event. Tickets cost $3 per child, and the simulation is free for accompanying adults. Tickets can be purchased at the event on a first-come, first-served basis.

Scouts and other interested youth can get their OI mummy fun patch for attending this event. Patches available onsite.

This project is backed by the Office of the Provost of the University of Chicago.
