So Museum lovers, you are not paying something for nothing. You will win something for whatever you pay.
The Museum boasts of everything from shrunken heads, scientific and medical instruments, dead fish, and bones of giant animals, Cyclop’s skull, and feathers of extinct birds to the dodo bones and mermaid remains. What is missing in this wonderful spot in Hackney is a Mummy.
On the other hand if you look at Camden, there are around 1000s of mummies for the interest of the visitors. Why should Camden have all the fun? Why not Hackney?
The funny connotation is “We need a Mummy now, not a yummy mummy, but a Dead Mummy”
