Having never seen the original exhibition of the Treasure of Tutankhamen I was very pleasantly surprised to visit this exhibition. Each visitor receives an audio system for commentary during their visit. The treasure artifacts that are presented to the visitor are made to the highest...More

Visited with our grandson (8) and we were all fascinated. An exhibition that's put together with obvious skill and enthusiasm. The exhibits themselves are works of art, the audio assistance first-class. If classrooms were this much fun, I'd never have left school 47 years ago.

I learned so many new things regarding this young king. Although, these pieces are replicas, they are so lifelike and true to form. I am so amazed at how much the Egyptians accomplished without the modern day tools we use today!
