Turn up those speakers, and listen to the sounds of eerie, blowing winds in the desert and some woeful Egyptian music. This website starts off by using a multimedia approach to lure visitors into the Mus'e de la civilisation's Fascinating Egyptian Mummies online and museum exhibit. The music follows visitors once they choose the link "Head Into The Tomb". A bouncing yellow arrow all but insists visitors choose the link to "Mummification Process Exhibition". Once the arrow is clicked, visitors hear some menacing Egyptian music and are asked if they want to "Play" a game that tests their skill at determining the steps in the mummification process, or they can choose to skip the game to go directly to the exhibition. The information dispensed here includes the observation that the mummification process took 70 days to complete, and information on some famous mummies is given as well. The next game is about determining which organ goes in which Canopic jar. It's not as easy as it sounds. The final game concerns the weighing of the heart, which visitors can choose to undergo only if they dare.
