Legend has it that a cursed mummy was brought here and brought death and misfortune to those who came in contact with it. A tube station below also was said to have the mummy’s ghost present and was possibily responsible for the disappearance of two women.

    This was less than two years ago and my sensitivity to spirits declined.
    It was a school trip to the Museum and when we entered the Egyptian and Sudan section, I immediately felt dizzy and felt my air was clogged in my lungs. I turned around to lock gazes with one of the mummy cases and I couldn’t look away.
    Eventually, my best friend took me out of the section and I was able to breathe normally again. The dizziness subsided as well.
    There were more occurrences, but I always wondered if there were any other people who had similar experiences.
