About the Exhibit:
Buried beneath Egypt’s golden sands for over three millennia, archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the tomb of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun on November 4th, 1922. When his financial backer, the Earl of Carnarvon, asked “Can you see anything?” Carter replied with the famous words: “Yes, wonderful things!”
Ten years in the making, this dazzling collection of 131 replicas of Tutankhamun’s legendary treasures recreates the richest archaeological find of all time. Carefully recreated by the artisans of the Pharaonic Village in Giza, Egypt and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this collection is larger and more complete than any previous exhibition of original artifacts.
King Tut: “Wonderful Things” from the Pharaoh’s Tomb will be open in Anaheim through January 24 and is sponsored by the City of Anaheim, Anaheim Public Utilities, Anaheim Public Works, and Disneyland Resort. Produced by Origins Museum Institute.
Admission is $10 for adults, $9 for seniors, $6 for ages 3–12, and free for children under 3. Anaheim students always free thanks to our sponsors. For group rates and membership information, call 714-956-8936.
