King Tut’s Tomb Discovery Experience
Expiration: 365 days after purchase
The Houston Museum of Natural Science is proud to present an awe-inspiring event that will transport visitors back to 1922 as they explore the world premier exhibition, King Tut’s Tomb Discovery Experience. Travel to Egypt’s fabled Valley of the Kings to accompany famed Egyptologist Howard Carter as he gazes into King Tut’s Tomb for the very first time.
Experience the dark and winding tunnels that led to Tutankhamen’s burial chambers, explore the countless golden treasures he took with him into the afterworld, and explore the brightly colored, floor-to-ceiling hieroglyphs that detail his life and offer prayers to the gods to ensure a blessed life after death.
Surrounded by elements of the recent–and ancient–past, visitors will bask in the glories of King Tut’s Tomb and walk in the footsteps of Howard Carter when he gets his first glimpse of “Wonderful things!”
Join Carter in a miraculous discovery that quite literally brought Tutankhamen back to life for the entire world to see. Celebrate his life, witness his death, and contemplate the certainty of the ancient Egyptian afterlife when you visit King Tut’s Tomb Discovery Experience at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
