King Tut’s death mask
This photo was taken from the internet as we were not allowed to take pictures in the gold room
Our tour title is Ancient Egypt and the Nile River. As an introduction, this afternoon we visited the Egyptian Museum. I usually am not a museum person but still found this one interesting.
This famous museum houses the world’s largest collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts (more than 120,000 items on display) featuring the famous Tutankhamun (king Tut) collection with the beautiful gold death mask and sarcophagus, and the royal Mummy room. Interesting King Tut Facts
: King Tut
ruled for only about 10
years, from approximately 1333 BC to 1324 BC. He was the
Pharaoh of Egypt. His father died when he was only seven, and he became Pharaoh two years later when he married his sister. During his reign, Tutankhamun accomplished
little. He's famous
because his tomb was the first ever nearly intact tomb of a pharaoh that was ever uncovered, by Howard Carter, in 1922. ... In short, Tutankhamun
because of his tomb and stuff found in it, particularly the golden burial mask that is displayed in the museum. Mummies were fascinating.
Most of my pictures taken inside the museum are not good. Most displays are behind glass, so you get glare. To see some
additional pictures, go to the photos tab to see them all.
