"While many a mummy-costumed trick-or-treater heads to the streets this Halloween weekend, Minnesota’s most famous bona fide mummy is going to Children’s Hospital in St. Paul for a CT scan.

The Science Museum of Minnesota has decided it’s time to strip away some of the mystery from the mummy it acquired in 1925 as a donation from the private collection of Mr. and Mrs. Simon P. Crosby.

Thousands of Minnesotans have seen this mummy over the years without knowing much about it.

A few hints came in 1983 when radiographic studies revealed that all internal organs except the heart had been removed during the mummification process, a common practice that confirms the mummy’s authenticity."
