Well, we found something very different. First, I should say that based on the advertisement we saw in the newspaper, we drove over 5 1/2 hours to get to the museum. Once there, we paid $100 for our tickets. After that, we stood in a line 2 1/2 hours long to get into the museum. Once you have stood in the line, and are about ready to go in, there is another person who comes up and wants to know if you want the audio headsets so you can hear what is going on with each display (for another $20 per person). What ????? After all this you will not know what is going on unless you shell out another $20?
So, right off the bat, this whole thing did not feel right. Well, we finally got in there. It was very crowded, and the best way I can describe it would be 17 rooms of Egyptian Nik-Nacks. The first 6 or 7 rooms had lots of Egyptian stuff only very loosely related to King Tut. As you went through the displays, the rooms gradually got more dramatic, darker, and had fewer and better items. The suspense was building. You finally got to a room that had only one item . . . a little basket that had held King Tut's liver. The basket was open, and you could look in. I can tell you that King Tut's liver was not in the basket for the display. Anyway, this had built to such a climax, you are sure the next room will have the Boy King's mummy, and dramatic burial mask. But no, the next room just dumps you into the gift shop. The way you know that it is the gift shop is that the little Nik-Nacks now have prices on them, and you can pick them up.
Wow, what a RIP-OFF. King Tut, his Sarcophagus, his golden burial mask (the one dramatically pictured in all the advertisements), his coffin, and all that stuff WERE NOT AT THE MUSEUM! You should have seen the looks on people's faces as they got dumped into the gift shop. Everyone had the same reaction, "Where is King Tut?"
You know, I might have actually enjoyed the exhibit if they had just been honest in what they had . . . 17 rooms of Egyptian Nik-Nacks, and the basket they used to hold his liver. Oh, and they had a little headband and necklace he used.
