King Tut

We attended the King Tut Exhibit at the Discovery Times Square Expo. 500 people can enter the exhibit each hour, so I thought it would be crowded. I was happy to see that there was no line when we arrived at 9:50 and about 100 people were viewing the exhibit.

The exhibit contained a lot of beautiful and interesting pieces ranging from jewelry to a chariot. We rented the audio tape which provided a lot of interesting facts about the Age of Pharaohs. I was amazed by the work of goldsmiths from 3000 years ago.

We attended the exhibit on its final day. The relics are returning to a museum in Egypt. These pieces are not supposed to return to the US again.
