The Indianapolis Children’s Museum opened a new exhibit in June of 2009 called The Golden King and The Great Pharoahs. Hundreds of artifacts and treasures that were burried with Egyptian Pharoah Tutankhamun are featured on display. Indianapolis children are able to experience the world of King Tut at the Children’s Museum until October 15, 2009. Admission for children is $15 and adult admission rates range from $23 to $30, depending on the time of the week.
Hundreds of tiny bits of ancient Egyptian history are on display at the museum, which is located in downtown Indianapolis. Many of the artifacts on display have never been displayed in the United States. The fact that this valuable exhibit is on display here really enhances the value of Indianapolis education and of Indianapolis society, culture and community overall.
This exhibit was designed to teach children and adults about the rich history of Egypt and the nearly 2,000 years worth of ancient history presented at the Indianapolis Children’s Museum. The exhibit is strategically divided into four rooms in the museum, which correspond with the four rooms of King Tut’s tomb. Countless treasures were discovered with the tomb in 1922, by British explorer howard Carter. Some of the major artifacts in The Gold King and The Great Pharoahs exhibit include the Tutankhamun’s golden sandals, CT scans of Tut’s mummy, and the largest image of King Tut ever found.
The Golden Kind and the Great Pharoahs exhibit not only features artifacts and historical documentation of King Tut, but also the several other Egyptian pharoahs from the Fourth Dynasty into the Late Period. National Geographic Books published a book to go along with the exhibition, so that the education and magnificant artifacts may be preserved for all to see.
The Children’s Museum is one of the many exciting things to do in Indianapolis.
