See mummies, at a discount

Food Lion has offered its customers $5 off full-price ticket and audio guide packages for Mummies of the World at Discovery Place through March 23. The discount is available in the weekly circular and online. The exhibition, which made its southern U.S. premiere at Discovery Place and is entering its final weeks, includes more than 150 specimens, including real human and animal mummies and related artifacts from around the world. Using interactive and multimedia technology, the exhibition reveals how the scientific study of mummies provides a window into the lives of ancient people, offering insights into past cultures and civilizations. It also demonstrates that mummification – both through natural processes and intentional practices – has taken place all over the globe, from the hot desert sands of South America to remote European moors and bogs. Food Lion customers can download the special-offer coupon by going to or can find it in the Food Lion weekly circular. Shoppers are limited to one discount per coupon. The four-week promotion ends March 23. Full-price admission to the exhibit plus an audio guide is $29 for adults, $23 for children ages 2-13, and $25 for students and seniors.
