The treasures from Egypt’s legendary boy king land in Cedar Park at the Texas Museum of Science & Technology (TXMOST). The traveling exhibition opens on Saturday, Nov. 12, and brings to life the enigmatic, opulent age of 18th Dynasty Egypt with a collection of reproductions of items from Tutankhamun’s world.
“This Tutankhamun Exhibition has been on a nonstop national tour since its inaugural opening two decades ago,” says Marty Martin, The Origins Museum Institute’s CEO and curator.
Accompanied by lively text, 131 replicas of the pharaoh’s sacred and personal possessions plus artifacts from the period reconstruct both the historic discovery of the tomb by Howard Carter and the life and times of Pharaoh Tutankhamun. Items include the golden Canopic Shrine, the pharaoh’s state chariot, the iconic golden mummy case, his throne, child’s chair, embalming couch, bed, jewelry, funerary mask and the bejeweled royal mummy.
Ticket prices range from $12 – $18.
