King Tut Has Arrived in The Twin Cities
February 22, 2011 at 3:26 PM
It might not be the most practical layover destination from the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport, but if you’re visiting the Twin Cities it might as well be on your itinerary this summer. King Tut and plenty of his ancient goodies have made their way to the Science Museum of Minnesota, and plenty of history will be on display through the beginning of September.
The museum welcomes one and all to enter the golden world of the pharaohs, as the exhibit opened up over the weekend. There’s more than 100 different artifacts from thousands of years past including plenty of goodies from King Tut. Golden sandals as well as 10-foot statue are just some of the items on display during this exhibition.
Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs also includes plenty of modern science, as it attempts to reveal the secrets behind the history. Tickets run around $25 per adult for access into the special exhibit in addition to all the other treasures and goodies held at the museum. It’s $5 more if you want to watch the Omnitheater movie. With Egypt on hold for many right now, this might be the next best option.
