The Museum of Man in San Diego, CA

 

 

The Museum of Man in Balboa Park, San Diego The Museum of Man in San Diego probably has more (and different types of) mummies on display than any other museum in the United States. 

Included in its permanent exhibit are Peruvian mummies, Egyptian mummies, and the controversial Lemon Grove mummies  (stolen from a cave in Mexico by teenage grave robbers).

The Ancient Egypt and Mummies display on the second floor is a little tired these days, sequestered in a corner of the second floor. 

The last time I visited (August 2000), a number of display labels were missing, and the exhibit felt neglected.

Here are some highlights:

Peruvian mummy

shrunken heads from the Jivaro Indians

Egyptian mummies (including a hawk mummy)

 

STAYING IN SAN DIEGO: The museum is located in Balboa Park near downtown San Diego which is worth a trip in itself! Many hotels are in the area.
