2.The Egyptian Mummies Exhibition - Montreal Museum of Fine Arts

When we think of Halloween, we systematically think of mummies and skeletons. But now, we are not talking about mummies made of toilet paper, but about real Egyptian mummies who lived several centuries before Jesus Christ. Presented for the first time in North America, this exhibition tells the story of six people who have been mummified. It's enough to give you goosebumps!
