The Pacific Science Center, 200 Second Avenue North, Seattle, WA 98109 has an exhibition about the pharaoh Tutankhamun. It’s titled “The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs”. It started on May 24, 2012 and it will last until January 6, 2012 (Open daily from 9:45 a.m. to 6 p.m.)
The exhibition has been a success and YM advises its readers not stop visiting it.
You can see more than a hundred pieces, twice the number of artifacts than the original Tut show from the 1970’s, many of them never before seen in America.
YM notes specially:
-The largest image of pharaoh Tutankhamun ever exhumed – a 10-foot statue of the boy king found at the remains of the funerary temple of two of his high officials.
-Tutankahmun’s golden funerary sandals discovered in 1922 by British archaeologist Howard Carter .
-And the spectacular canopic coffinette (that once contained the boy king’s mummified stomach).
Besides jewelry, pieces of furniture and other ceremonial items.
The exhibition is organized by National Geographic and Arts & Exhibitions International, with cooperation from the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities. Northern Trust is a proud cultural partner. American Airlines is the official airline of the exhibition. Seattle’s Convention and Visitor’s Bureau is the Seattle exhibition sponsor. Fred Meyer is the Seattle exhibition education partner.
