King Tut

April 28, 2007 at 10:08 am (Uncategorized)

Our study of Egypt has been leading up to a trip to see a King Tut exhibit.  This is not THE King Tut Exhibit, but a reproduction of what the tomb looked like when it was discovered.  All the artifacts in this exhibit are reproductions.  The rooms have been staged to look exactly like they did when the tomb was opened in 1922.

The Treasury. 
My 3 year old was quite concerned that the doggie had a bad ouchie and need a BIG band-aid!  LOL  He gave everyone in the exhibit quite a laugh!

The Burial Chamber.
My daughter looking at King Tuts sarcophagus.  It is really impressive!

The Annexe
I was amazed how much my 3 and 6 year olds liked this exhibit.  I thought we would rush through, but we actually spent an hour looking around. (It is pretty small and I think most people made it through in 1/2 that time.  We actually restarted our headsets and listened to the tour twice.)  I think all the prep work we did all week really paid off!

The Antechamber
My daughter is proudly showing off her shirt which today says "Cool Mummy!"  LOL

Necklaces

King Tut’s throne chair

In this case they found the mummified toungue and eyes of the King. My daughter thought that was SO gross!

The kids got Pharaoh Headdresses at the Museum Gift Shop.
They look pretty cute in them!

Not to be outdone the dog poses for a few royal shots!  LOL

Our dog will put up with about anything!  LOL
Isn’t he CUTE!  The kids want to submit this picture to stuffonmymutt.com a website we are hooked on!  (Warning…Do not click over to stuffonmymutt.com unless you have hours to waste looking at funny dog pictures!  LOL)
