Tutankhamun: "Wonderful Things From The Pharaoh's Tomb"
February 3 - September 3, 2017
Ten years in the making, from the artisans of the Pharaonic Village in Giza, Egypt and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this dazzling collection of reproductions of Tutankhamun’s legendary treasures recreates the richest archaeological find of all time. While the experience of seeing the original artifacts is unsurpassable, the sheer number of replicas in the Tutankhamun: “Wonderful Things” from the Pharaoh’s Tomb collection far exceeds the number of original objects from the tomb which have been allowed to leave the Egyptian Museum for view abroad. Most of the more impressive artifacts will never be seen in the U.S. but for replicas of this quality.
Changing Exhibit Hall (in addition to museum admission when applicable)
The museum's exhibitions are housed in 14 permanent galleries. There is also a changing exhibition hall, an outdoor science garden, nature trails, a state-of-the-art planetarium, an observatory and the international headquarters of the Organization for Bat Conservation. The major overarching theme to the exhibitions is the interconnectedness in nature. This idea is introduced to visitors in a unique, multi-media theater called the Connections Theater.
