The ancient Egyptians not only applied embalming to dead humans but also to many animals (Cats, Fish, Crocodiles & Dogs, etc ). God Anubis (the Jackal) was the god of embalming and mummification. The mummification process is believed to have taken around 70 days, accompanied by many rituals. The organs of the deceased were carefully removed through a small incision (10 cm) in the left side of the body and preserved in Canopic jars. The body was then dried in sodium nitrate, or nitrate salt brought from Wadi El Natron, for about 40 days, and finally wrapped in bandages of linen. Magical amulets were placed within the wrappings on various parts of the body to protect the deceased. The family then received the body and placed it in a coffin for burial.
The Mummification Museum provides a comprehensive view of the entire process through the display of many tools, objects, and equipment used for the process, as well as an explanation of the ritual and religious significance of the practice.
