PHOENIX - Step back in time as a new exhibition opens at the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix on Saturday.

It’s called Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets, Modern Science and gives visitors a chance to see how archeologists use modern science and technology to learn about ancient civilizations.

The exhibition features a modern Egyptian street scene, a field site where visitors can explore tools, science and technologies used at the Lost City of the Pyramid Builders on the Giza Plateau, a human mummy and a laboratory with animal mummies, X-rays and CT scans of human and animal mummies.

The exhibition opens Saturday, May 31 and runs through September 1.
