Egyptian Dynasty

An Exhibit 3300 Years in the Making. That’s the King Tut exhibit, now showing in Munich until August 30th. This exhibit has toured the earth for many more years than the young king lived, as I remember seeing it in San Francisco back in the 70s. Apparently the exhibit has been updated several times over, and this tour enables you to walk through the tomb in full scale. Apparently this is the farewell tour before returning to its homeland for good. The exhibit at Olympia park covers 4000 square meters and includes more than 3000 images documenting every aspect of the discovery in 1922, and the following restoration and preservation of thousands of artifacts. Apparently, it’s the closest you can get to Egypt without getting on a plane. Photos of the exhibit and artifacts look stunning.
