Time is running out for King Tut exhibit at the Children's Museum

 

If you ever wanted to see the treasures of ancient Egypt but lacked the resources to actually travel to ancient Egypt, the Children's Museum of Indianapolis has brought them to you.

For a mere $25 (Monday through Thursday) or $30 (Friday through Sunday), you can more than 100 ancient artifacts from the tombs of Tutankhamun and other ancient rulers: ranging from statues to jewelry to ornate jars that contained the boy king's inner organs.

The exhibit even makes use of some very modern technology to analyze the ancient treasures, such as computerized tomography (CT) scans of King Tut's mummy.

Although these artifacts are thousands of years old, you don't have the luxury of waiting thousands of years to see them. Time runs out to see this exhibit (as it did on King Tut himself) October 25.

Children's Museum of Indianapolis

    A great oportunity to see King Tut's artifacts outside Egypyt. In the future it will be impossible because they are so sensitive and fragile, soon they will remains in Cairo.

    In Germany, they are having a big success with a new exhibit. Tutankhamun his tomb his treasure. The complete reconstitution of the tomb of Tutankhamun, the objects as they were found back in 1922. It tooks 6 years to built and reproduce 1000 different artifacts from the treasure. The great artist behind this project is Dr. Mostafa El Ezapi from Cairo. Since 25 years he is studying Egyptian arts, the techniques used by the artists at that time and especially the Tutankhamun treasure. His replicas are work of art, the golden innermost coffin and the golden mask of the king are so perfect, he really catch the expression of the young boy king. He even built the golden shrines, the chariots etc... everything covered with 24kt gold leaves...WOW.

    Please see the amazing work of Dr. Mostafa: www.goldentut.com
