Treasures on display for the last time before leaving North America forever!
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 09, 2012
Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs invites guests to step into one of history's most treasured stories and features more than 100 objects from King Tut's tomb and ancient sites representing some of the most important rulers throughout 2,000 years of ancient Egyptian history. This final tour of King Tut treasures features more than twice the number of artifacts than the King Tut exhibit that visited Seattle in the late 70’s. The objects will be displayed in a dramatic, themed setting, making this final tour of King Tut’s treasures an experience to be remembered forever.
The King Tut Seattle Exhibit features the largest image of King Tut ever unearthed - a 10-foot statue of the Pharaoh, authentic objects from King Tut's tomb including jewelry, furniture and ceremonial items, as well as the boy king's golden sandals - created specifically for the afterlife and covering his feet when his mummified remains were discovered in 1922 by British explorer Howard Carter.
The King Tut VIP hotel packages, which are on sale now, vary and offer a number of benefits including VIP tickets, special pricing, spa packages, themed food and wine experiences and transportation to the exhibition. King Tut hotel packages may be viewed at King Tut Seattle Exhibit Hotels.
