Tutankhamun - His Tomb and His Treasures
I recently had the opportunity to visit the fantastic Tutankhamun - His Tomb and His Treasures exhibition being hosted at The Globe, at Silverstar Casino out in Muldersdrift. This international exhibition is the first of its kind to grace our country, after successfully visiting numerous international cities.
The exhibition begins with a a history of Egypt, which included a replica of the Rosetta Stone on display. With the help of an audioguide, one makes their way through the first part of the exhibition, learning more about Howard Carter, the man responsible for the discovery of the tomb of King Tutankhamun.
Next up is a trip to a little "cinema", where a short movie is shown. The movie tells the story of Howard Carter in more detail, and how it was that he came upon the tomb of the King, As you walk through the exit of the cinema, you're treated to a replica of the tomb and its treasures. The next display is that of the sarcophagus of King Tutankhamun. After the last audio/visual presentation, you are then free to leisurely examine the replicas on display.
There is much to learn and experience amidst the more than 1000 treasures on display. The exhibition runs till 01 March 2015.
