Quest for Immortality: The world of Ancient Egypt

Dear readers, how have your Christmas eve and Christmas day been? It must be good right? Same here for me as I have been to a few very exciting and interesting places of interests for Singapore tropical Christmas which I will definitely share with you in the coming few posts, so do watch out for it!

This morning, Christmas Day, my parents, wife and I went to see not Santa Claus on this Christmas Day, butMummy! Yup, the mummies you watched in those “Mummies” shows starring Brandon Fraser which come to life and which will come and grab you!

Mummy maniac has hit Singapore with the exhibition: “Quest for Immortality: The world of Ancient Egypt” held at the Singapore National Museum from 22 December 2009 to 4 Apr 2010. Ticket for this exhibition costs $15, but come every public holiday, admission charges to the 5 Singapore Museums: National museum, Asian Civilization museum, Philatelic museum, Arts museum and Peranakan museum are waived free. Hence, the “Mummy” exhibitions are open to the public for free today!

The waiver of charges is partly the reason why we want to see “Mummy” on Christmas day, the overriding reason is that we are historical buffs.

Initially, I have expected that there will be few people to this exhibition as Singaporeans are generally not known as historical buffs, but I was wrong.

As soon as we reached the outside of the exhibition gallery, we were surprised that an extremely long queue has formed outside the gallery. We were told that it would take us 3 hours just to enter the exhibition!

It was far too long to wait. Quest for Immortality Exhibition? Quest for Entry to Exhibition instead!
