The “Discovery of King Tut” in Kansas City, Missouri

King_Tut2What better way to celebrate the 100th birthday of Kansas Cityʼs beloved Union Station than a Premier Exhibit of King Tutʼs Tomb.

The original artifacts are no longer allowed out of Egypt, so local artisans from the region have painstakingly recreated them with every detail.

The 20,000 sq. ft. Tut Exhibit will transport visitors to Egyptʼs Valley of the Kings. They will be led on a “virtual archeological” tour that allows them to enter King Tutʼs tomb with all of his treasures in the precise locations in which they were discovered. Chamber by chamber you will see just what Howard Carter saw in 1922, as he opened up Tutʼs tomb. Jewelry, furniture, coffins and Tutʼs chariot will await visitors.

Many mysteries surround this discovery, including why Carters men died after entering the tomb. King Tut himself is a giant mystery since he was a boy Pharaoh at 9 years of age and died suspiciously at age 19.

This is a must see on your summer visit to Kansas City. Get your tickets through Union Station and walk in the footsteps of a man living over 3,000 years ago. And blow out some Birthday candles for our 100 year old Union Station!
