MUMMIES OF THE WORLD!! (Unite?)

I (Melissa) am responsible for group reservations for "Mummies of the World" at The Leonardo museum. This exhibit runs Feb.16 - May 27 in Salt Lake City. This is the LARGEST COLLECTION OF MUMMIES EVER ASSEMBLED IN AN EXHIBIT!

The exhibit is incredible, beautiful, multi-cultural, interactive and fascinating!! We'll also get admission to The Leonardo exhibits when we schedule a group visit.

Go directly through me so I can get us the group discount:

      It was nice to meet you, Jessica! Thanks for waiting in line- the group went in a few minutes early. What was your favorite part??

      It was nice to meet you. Thank you so much for coming down & making sure that I got into the exhibit okay! I really loved the whole exhibit, and seeing the mummies was very cool. This is a bit nerdy, but I think my favorite part was all of the information given & the way that it was displayed in several areas so that we didn't all have to crowd around & wait turns to read it off one little placard.

    hi i am not sure where to post this. your group and ideas sounds nice; i live in evanston, wy up here in the cold and snowy cowboy country i want to hold off becoming involved until spring breaks. it is just too risky coming around parley's and who knows where. please tell me who to get in touch with so that all involved in all groups understands. the notifications are nice but i have tried responding in like kind to several. just the same they keep coming?

      Hi Patricia- I think what need to do is change your notification settings at the top of the page under "My Profile." There you can choose what types of notifications you get.

    Sorry Melissa, just read all the comments below. So how do we pay in advance? Paypal? Please advise. thanks!

    February 16, 2013

    • Melissa

      Hi Sandy! You can call my office if you have credit/debit, or drop by/mail cash & checks to: The Leonardo, Attn: Melissa Cecala, 209 E 500 S SLC, UT 84111. Paypal is available as a last resort, but it is discouraged (tricky with reporting). Let me know what is best for you :)

    Hi Melissa - Do we pay you in advance or pay when we get there (to get the group discount)?

    Melissa, Do we need to purchase tickets ahead of time or when we get there?

    February 16, 2013

    • Melissa

      Hi Steve :) Yes, please purchase in advance if you can. The front desk will be inundated during the run of the show (for example, I hear there are about 300 people in the lobby of the museum right now!). I'll post instructions above

      February 16, 2013

  • Marguerite O.

    Melissa, Thanks for the information! You should be the advertisment on TV. Unfortunatly I will be unable to go that day. But after your explanation I am going to go see it! Thank you!

    I am interested in participating but this is my first time on meet up so i don't know what to expect. any advice would be awesome.

    February 12, 2013

    • Melissa

      Hi Sean! I'll be there in the main lobby, holding a sign that says "MEETUP" so we'll be easy to find :) Let me know if you have any questions (801)[masked] x133. Excited to meet you!!

      February 13, 2013

  • Marguerite O.

    What mummies? i was a little disapointed with last exibit, I expected at least real paintings and if not that larger paintings. I left me very hesatatant. Will these be just obscure mummies or will they be ones we have heard of like King Tutt?

    February 4, 2013

    • Melissa

      Hi Marguerite! This one will be quite different from Da Vinci (which focused on the man himself, more than his actual creations). The mummies are real, and what makes it most incredible is that over 20 museums/organizations around the world came together to assemble it. The mummies are not just from Egypt- the oldest known infant mummy on the planet (more than 3,000 years older than King Tut) from Peru is there. Entire mummified families, animals, and artifacts are featured, along with the science behind the study of mummification. Feel free to call/email with ?'s and I can give you fact sheets, FAQ's, etc. :) Thanks!!

      Thanks for your suggestions Melissa, but this short month of February is a packed one, and I can't make the other date. I guess I will have to pay full pop. LOL
