Here’s something a bit different. It’s a quick video montage from a recent visit with the fam to the Tutankhamun exhibit at COSI (Center of Science and Industry). COSI is a children’s museum of science and activities in Columbus, Ohio. A good place to take the kids to learn and have fun. Unfortunately the exhibit will only be up until Labor Day 2023, so I’m lucky we were able to make it in time. Music is “Funky Suspense” by Benjamin Tissot.
From COSI’s webpage:
“The huge exhibition TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES offers you a once-in-a-lifetime insight into the archaeology of ancient Egypt. Go on a fantastical voyage and experience the burial chambers and treasures of the King exactly as they were discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter… The gigantic Tutankhamun exhibition is home to over 1,000 exhibits”.
The exhibition uses highly detailed replicas of the treasures in Tut’s tomb. I’ve seen some of these items in person when I visited the Cairo Museum many years ago. Compared against my memory and photos it’s a very well crafted exhibit. It also allows pieces which had been stolen housed and various European museums to be displayed together, giving us a good idea of the abundance found in the tomb.
Below are some more photos taken from the Exhibit. There are no captions because I took no notes. I’m supposed to be on vacation, lol.
