'death: the human experience' is about the most universal of experiences that we will encounter.
It was a Bristol Museum & Art Gallery exhibition that ran from October 2015 to March 2016. This is an online version.
Hundreds of incredibly diverse objects- from a Ghanaian fantasy coffin to a Victorian mourning dress- reveal captivating stories from cultures across the world, from the earliest human societies to the modern day.
The exhibition encourages you to consider ethical issues, different attitudes to death and how different cultures have dealt with the end of life.
As a society we are reluctant to talk about death and dying. 'death: the human experience' is about helping to start that conversation.
Please note that the exhibition contains some items of a sensitive nature including displays of human remains, and discussion of suicide and assisted dying. You are able to avoid these sections if you prefer.
