Uncover a world beyond the tomb

By Heather Ramsay

The mysteries of ancient Egypt come to life at Te Papa's Egypt: Beyond the Tomb.

The exhibition features Egyptian burial treasures that include the sarcophagus of a woman who lived 2700 years ago.

Researchers have pieced together her story and you can follow her preparations for death and her journey through the underworld to the afterlife.

There's a range of supporting events. It runs until April 29 and costs $9.50 adults, $4.50 children 4-14 years, under-4 free, $20 family of two adults and two children.
