The Rosicrucian Mummies of San Jose

The Rosicrucian Mummies of San Jose: Tucked away in an area of San Jose best known for its green lawns and high-end homes are ancient mummies of everything from cats to catfish, including a few mummified people. These mummies rest in San Jose’s Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum with more than 4,000 other artifacts (originals and replicas), the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts on exhibit in the western United States.

Georgia should have visited them.

I lived within walking distance of there and visited a number of times. I also dated, very briefly, the girl who sold tickets at the time.

I enjoyed a visit to the museum in 2006 when I went to Baycon. Had also planned to tour the Winchester Mystery House, but didn't make it.
