The "Mummies of the World" exhibit will have extended hours, 10 a.m. until 7 p.m., until it closes its five-month run at the California Science Center at Exposition Park later this month, it was announced today.
And on its final weekend, Nov. 26-28, the exhibit will be open from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m.
"This exhibition traveled nearly 6,000 miles to become part of the rich and diverse culture of Los Angeles," said Marc Corwin, president of American Exhibitions Inc. "We anticipate a lot of traffic to `Mummies of the World' in its remaining weeks in Los Angeles, and we encourage people to plan ahead so they won't miss their chance to see it."
The exhibit, which includes a wide variety of mummies from around the world, opened July 1 in Los Angeles and logged 100,000 visitors in the first seven weeks.
