I Will Never Forget the King Tut Exhibit

King Tut San FranciscoOne of the greatest pleasures of my life was visiting the King Tut exhibit at the Denver Art Museum. This exciting exhibit featured more than 50 objects from King Tut’s tomb.

I am a major ancient history buff, so I was naturally excited when the exhibit was announced. I knew that the Denver Art Museum was going to deliver a tasteful, interesting exhibit, but what they prepared exceeded my expectations. I am not one to provide spoilers, but I can say that this exhibit delivered a one-of-a-kind experience.

The most striking part of the exhibit was the recreation of King Tut’s tomb. You really felt like you were walking into history. The attention to detail was exquisite, as any museum visitor could easily understand the impact the Egyptian pharaohs had on history. It was a blast visiting this exhibit with friends and seeing their faces as they got an idea of life in those times.

My only wish is that people all across the country could get a chance to see this exhibit. The Denver Art Museum has prided itself on delivering the best exhibits, and it seems almost unfair that we get to enjoy its efforts.

My mom told me that certain classes at her school got the opportunity to visit the exhibit, which made me feel great. I know that there are a lot of kids interested in history, but it is very difficult to get a sense of different eras by reading about them in books. By going to the museum, future history buffs like me can get that first taste of what it was really like in ancient times. In fact, part of the exhibit has an area for younger kids to try on ancient Egyptian costumes.

I have visited the exhibit ten times during its run, and will likely visit it ten more times before it concludes.
