I traveled from Canada to Chicago just to visit this museum and was not disappointed. Their permenant Egyptian collection was unbelievable from their incredible 23 human mummies and ancient boat, to their reconstruction of 2 different tombs. I found their presentations to be interesting and thrilling.
I also visited the King Tut and was not disappointed. However, I can understand how some people can be, if they aren't aware of exactly what they are paying to see. All of the bigger finds of King Tut are not present - they are still in Egyot were I doubt they will ever leave. This is understandable because on the previous exhibit a piece of an artifact was damaged - these are rare and important pieces for history in terms of Egyptian history, Egyptologists, and archeaologists. My impression is that the mummy mask that is being promoted is in fact the face of the coffinette which IS displayed. I was extremely impressed how they presented the wooden bust of King Tut - between the music, lighting, and build up, it was great! All the pieces displayed were worthy of the hype, in my opinion. I would definitelty recommend this exhibit to one and all!
