African Room

African Room

What do canopic jars, a Mossi-Dogon mask, a portion of limestone stele, and Nesiur, our real 2,800 year old mummy have in common? They are all on exhibit in our African Room, which highlights unique objects and curious items from the continent of Africa collected by local Miami Valley citizens. Nesiur, her story, and a re-creation of what her face might have looked like, are highlighted in the African Room.
