A really interesting and well told exhibition of Egyptian artifacts including several mummies which are revealed by x-rays and ct scans. English descriptions throughout. Very enjoyable visit

I have manly seen Picasso paintings and sculptures in the past so it was good to see another side of his work. The most interesting part was the collaboration he had with a young photographer.
