The Mummy is Moving!

This is the last weekend to see the National Geographic Exhibit, Tutankhamun and The Golden Age of The Pharaohs. For one last weekend in both Dallas and Atlanta, your family can explore the figures who guided ancient Egypt more than 3,000 years ago. The exhibition focuses on the 18th Dynasty, a 100-year period when Egypt was at the height of its power and the "golden age" of Egyptian artistry. This was the era when Tutankhamun and his ancestors reigned. The extensive array of more than 130 extraordinary artifacts from the tomb of Tutankhamun and other ancient Egyptian sites features 50 of Tutankhamun's burial objects, including his royal diadem and one of the four gold and precious stone inlaid canopic coffinettes that contained his mummified internal organs.

The 2 exhibits of The King and his crew will be relocating to the De Young Museum in San Francisco and the Children's Museum of Indianapolis. Tours of this piece of history will begin June 27, 2009 for both new locations.

Commemorate your visit to see the treasures with this pair of King Tut Cufflinks. Tutankhamun mask cufflinks are ideal for the archeology buff or art lover. The infamous King Tut’s mask is depicted in shiny vermeil (gold plated sterling silver) and perfectly enameled with red and blue accents. Truly a collector’s pair.

Tickets for these events in all four cities are available at and through the vending museums Websites.
