If you are in South Mumbai, be sure to visit ‘Prince of Wales Museum’ (now called Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya) at Kala Ghoda to see an interesting exhibition on Mummy called ‘The Inside Story’, that unravels the mystery of the Egyptian Mummy.

 The tour is interactive with the exhibition guide leading you through different Egyptian artifacts, happy to give you a deeper insight on Nesperennub, a priest of the temple of Karak, near Egyptian city of Lusur, "who has himself has been the subject of such a process of discovery, and subsequent scans, along with a detailed inscription left by his son, and have allowed historians to piece together the life of this Thebean resident".

 The exhibition will be displayed for four months and Indians will get an opportunity to encounter a real Mummy.

 Visitors also get to see the ‘Virtual unwrap’ of the mummy in 3d film.

 There is an interesting article on Economic times as well.

 You are not allowed to take pictures although you can take a visual tour of the exhibition here at

The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),

.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.
