King Tut Exhibit
Homeschoolers can learn about King Tut while visiting Seattle.
Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs will
be at the Pacific Science Center until January 6th, 2013.
This exhibit provides insight into the life of Tutankhamun and other royals of the 18th Dynasty (1555–
1305 BC). All of the treasures in the exhibition are more than 3,000 years old.
We saw this exhibit while it was in Houston. We went on a week day, hoping it wouldn't be crowded. Our
slot was 11:30 am, and it was packed! Must have been all the Spring Breakers.
The kids enjoyed it, and if there's one thing they learned, it's that "you
can't take it with you!"
Tutankhamun was one of the last kings of Egypt’s 18th Dynasty and ruled during a critical period of
Egyptian history. The boy king died under mysterious circumstances at the age of 18 or 19, in the ninth
year of his reign (1322 BC). Tutankhamun’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings was filled with magnificent
treasures meant to ensure his divine immortality.
Tutankhamun: The golden King and the Great Pharaohs offers glimpses of that critical period in Egyptian
history. Included are many of the day-to-day objects enjoyed by the young king, including a finely
crafted child’s chair and an inlaid game board.
