Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 07, 2011
King Tutankhamun is perhaps the most iconic ruler of Ancient Egypt. The mysteries of his life, the splendor of his tomb and the beauty of his treasures have made him the symbol of the pharaohs. Now, visitors to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston have a chance to see and learn about this ancient ruler during the final southwestern stop for the National Geographic exhibition “Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs.” The Renaissance Houston Greenway Plaza Hotel has partnered with the museum to deliver a special, limited time offer.
This Houston, TX hotel deal offers guests deluxe accommodations, breakfast for two and two VIP tickets to the King Tut exhibition. VIP access lets guests visit the exhibition without pre-reserving a date and time, as well as enter the exhibition through a “Fast Track” line, meaning less time waiting and more time exploring the wonders of Egypt’s most iconic pharaoh.
This deal is available now until April 15, 2012, and can be booked online at the Houston hotel website using promotional code CUE.
The exhibition features rare and unique artifacts from King Tut’s life, including a 10-foot statue of King Tut—the largest of its kind. Most of these artifacts have never been seen in North America prior to this tour, making it a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience that visitors don’t have to travel all the way to Egypt to behold.
Not only will visitors have a chance to see relics from the life of King Tut, but other kings of Egypt as well. The exhibition paints a picture of what it meant to be a king in ancient Egypt. Visitors will learn about the ceremonies involved in entombment, the culture of the royal court and even some of the fashions of these ancient rulers.

Soft beds, spacious rooms and a convenient location just a few minutes away from the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston all make this Houston, TX hotel one of the best places to stay when visiting the King Tut exhibit.
