On May 13, 2000, we peeked under the wrappings of an Egyptian mummy from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. A live video link connected us to the imaging center at UC San Francisco. Radiologist Dr. Henry Goldberg and Fine Arts museum conservator Lesley Bone guided us through the CT scan and helped to interpret the findings.
In 2000, the Exploratorium created the Revealing Bodies exhibition, which presented visual images, models, and multimedia about observing, describing, and conceptualizing the human body.
