Tutankhamun in Minnesota

Tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings

KV 62

Visitors to the Science Museum of Minnesota are getting a glimpse into the life of Egyptian royalty at the King Tut exhibit that is now open. The Science Museum says more than 100 artifacts are on display, including King Tut’s sandals and the jars that once held his internal organs. It is the largest exhibit the museum has ever hosted.  The exhibit, Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs, teaches about the 18th dynasty and the role pharaohs played in religion and society in Egypt. It includes information about the discovery of King Tut’s tomb in 1922 and the modern science that revealed clues about his death.

I’m not sure why the report calls him Tut. Only dweebs and the uninformed and that windbag Hawass call him that.  Anyway, if you’re around the area go see it.  It’s a fantastic exhibition (saw it when it made the rounds in New York).
