Boys & Girls Clubs and Ronald McDonald House youth invited to experience Mummies of the World

. April 15, 2015

CINCINNATI – Cincinnati Museum Center and American Exhibitions, Inc., producers of Mummies of the World, continue their efforts to support the local community by inviting nearly 50 Boys & Girls Clubs members and staff as well as 30 Ronald McDonald House of Greater Cincinnati patients and families to view the exhibition before it closes on April 26. The students enjoyed the groundbreaking exhibition along with interactive programming and activities.

Mummies of the World“We are thrilled to collaborate with Cincinnati Museum Center, a venue recognized for offering unique and educational initiatives for youth, to provide this experience to the Boys & Girls Clubs and Ronald McDonald House of Greater Cincinnati,” says Marcus Corwin, president and CEO of American Exhibitions, Inc., producer of Mummies of the World. “American Exhibitions, Inc. dedicates time and resources to youth-related philanthropic endeavors in every market in which its presentations tour but the opportunity to offer the chance to experience the exhibition, which will not be in Cincinnati much longer, is an opportunity for us.”

For children and families staying at the Ronald McDonald House, visiting the Mummies of the World exhibit is an opportunity to take their mind off their illness and enjoy a unique experience together. While Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center treats their body, Cincinnati Museum Center and Mummies of the World treat their mind and spirit, igniting their curiosity and building connections with each other that will make their stay at the Ronald McDonald House even better.

For those children involved with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Cincinnati, a visit to Mummies of the World may be the first step in a career as an archaeologist. The exhibit takes science and history out of the classroom and presents it in a stunning visual display with fascinating stories that will spark a desire for more information and further education. And for those who may not aspire to be a future archaeologist, the exhibit allows for an afternoon they’ll never forget in a positive, enriching atmosphere unlike any other in the city.

Mummies of the World will continue to fascinate and educate visitors through April 26 at Cincinnati Museum Center.
