King Tut-ing

There are so many exhibits and activities going on that I sometimes feel like I have to use “eenie-meanie-minee-moe” to decide what to see or do. When I saw the ad announcing the exhibit, Tutankhamun: His Tomb and His Treasures, I had to go.

The exhibition consisted of reconstructed objects, film, and narration based on the discovery of King Tut’s burial grounds in Egypt in 1922. I found the exhibit fascinating, especially the scale and detail of the objects, from the Rosetta Stone to the artifacts in the tomb. Also, each of the attendees were given a device that allowed us to individually control the audio presentation based on the display.

I’m going to let the photos speak for themselves:

As usual, click on individual pictures to enlarge. The more than 200 pictures I took are available at

Overall, I think I chose a good day to go (Wednesday morning). The exhibition hall was not as busy as I suspect it has been, so it made it easier to get really good pictures.
