This fun exhibit shows some embalming mistakes like a casing that didn't fit it's occupant so they added another bit around the feet. I assume the pieces that are not perfectly executed would be seen as faulty which is why I've never seen this kind of thing. Then again, I have never been mistaken for an Egyptologist. Looking back through history it easy to think everything, especially something as important as some ones eternal existence, is always perfect and deliberate. It's comforting to know that people have been making mistakes and fudging it for more then 3000 years.
The size of the show is manageable and can be seen in an hour or so. Thats a well spent hour or so for those who have and have't been mistaken for Egyptologist and it leaves plenty of time to see other parts of the museum.
