I missed the King Tut exhibit 30 years ago in NYC and when I learned it was returning this year I swore I would not miss it again.

My companions on this trip back in time were my granddaughter Tiffany and my son-in-law Mike.

The King Tut exhibit is at the Discovery Times Square Exposition located on W 44th St just off Broadway.  King Tut will be there until around Feb 2, 2011.  It’s mind boggling to me how well preserved some of the artifacts like jewelry, weapons, and games are.   Just added to the exhibit is King Tut’s chariot, the one that possibly caused his death.  So if you’re at all interested in learning more about the boy king I urge you to see this exhibit before goes back to Egypt forever.

Oh, and by the way, King Tut wasn’t the only king I saw in NYC.
