The King Tut Exhibit comes to Idaho Falls

Come see a dazzling collection of Tutankhamen’s (a.k.a. King Tut) burial treasures. With over 130 artifacts masterfully produced in Egypt, this blockbuster exhibition is larger and more complete than any previous exhibition of the originals.

Artisans from the Pharaonic Village in Giza, Egypt and the Metropolitan Museum of Art spent ten years recreating the richest archaeological find of all time.

Displayed in open glass cases, the exhibition includes replicas of the pharaoh’s sacred and personal possessions along with associated artifacts from the period surrounding Tutankhamen’s reign. The exhibit recalls the story of the historic discovery of the tomb by Howard Carter as well as the life and times of Egypt’s most celebrated boy-king, Tutankhamen. This exhibition will take you on a journey you will never forget.

More Info on King Tut

Tutankhamun was an 18th dynasty pharaoh who inherited the throne at a young age. His reign was short-lived and inconsequential in comparison to other great pharaoh's of Egypt. Upon his death, his legacy quickly faded into the sands of Egypt. Once forgotten by his nation, King Tut is now one of Egypt’s most well-known icons because of his beautiful and complete burial tomb. He continues to hold the world’s fascination and yet puzzles leading Egyptology historians. Many stories surround the pharaoh, including a legend about a curse.

Come take an in-depth look at King Tut and explore his life, treasure, curse, and discovery. Take a tour that will feel like a deep venture into King Tut’s tomb with discoverer Howard Carter on November 22, 1922.
