The mummified remains of Johannes Orlovitz, one of the Vac mummies, is displayed at the new Mummies of the World exhibit at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. The Orlovits family was with a group of mummies found in 1994 in a forgotten church crypt in Vac, Hungary. The mummy will be part of the "Mummies of the World" exhibit, which is being called the largest traveling exhibition of mummies ever assembled. The 45 mummies and 95 artifacts in the show come from 15 museums in seven countries, said Marc Corwin, CEO of American Exhibitions Inc. The show opens on June 25 at the California Science Center, then will go on a three-year tour across the country. (Photo Source: huanqiu.com)
