This event will take place in Cairo on the 3rd of April. The announcement was made in an official statement, which noted that the parade will start at 6 PM on Saturday and will contain 22 mummies that belong to between the seventeenth and twentieth dynasties.

The royal mummies that will be transferred to the new museum are 18 mummies of pharaohs and four of the ancient Egyptian queens.
