“The Discovery of King Tut”
Time Out says
Archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the tomb of King Tut almost 100 years ago and now kids will get the opportunity to experience the excavation firsthand. This exhibition provides visitors with an in-depth look at the tomb of famed boy-king, Tutankhamun. Featuring replicas and reconstructions of the burial goods found in the tomb—created by Egyptian craftsmen and Egyptologists—the exhibition will make kids feel as if they’ve traveled 3,000 years back in time. Guests can go on an audio tour based on Howard Carter’s diaries, video documentaries, extensive texts and object descriptions. Additionally, the exhibition will include a series of lectures by Egyptologists and a gallery dedicated to the relationship between New York and King Tut. All ages.
