IMAX package

Combine your visit to the Nicolson Museum with a film screening of Egypt 3D: Secrets of the Mummies at the LG IMAX Theatre Sydney!

Previously released as Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs, this new 3D version of the film takes on a completely new, totally immersive quality.

Audiences are taken back in time to a world full of wonder, mystique and intrigue, exploring Egypt through the dramatic canvas of the large-format screen.

Modern Egyptologists have coined the term 'embalmed evidence' to describe how mummies can provide clues to the distant past. By studying mummies, and their archaeological resting places, we obtain a unique window into ancient Egyptian culture, religion, medicine, and many other aspects of the daily life of this great ancient civilisation.

The Egyptians’ mummy-making culture was not the first, nor the last, or even the longest. But it was, arguably, one of the greatest. Audiences will discover how the ancient Egyptians developed a more complex belief system, magic, and art of embalming their dead than any other people in history.
