King Tut Exhibit

 We were able to go  see the King Tut exhibit at the Idaho Falls Museum. I had to use my camera phone to take these pictures, so I apologize up front for the quality of the photos. I honesty don't remember what they said about all the exhibits.  I will let you know  information about the item that I do remember. I do need to warn you that the photos of Tut himself are a little gross.
 These three statues were under the Tut sign.

 These are what the main origins were put in.

 They believe this was a gold statue of King Tuts wife.Sorry for the quality of the picture.

 These are statues of the main Gods.
                                                      King Tuts chair.

 This chairate (I told you when I started blogging I couldn't spell. That still hold true.) had to be cut in half to be taken out of the tomb and the wheels were removed.
 This was worn around Tuts neck on special occasions.
 King Tut was only 5feet 4 inches tall . When he died he was only 15 years old with a broken hip, two infections, and meningitis. Thankfully the pictures aren't as gross as the real thing.

         If you look on his fingers you will see these gold fingers and toes on him.
                                                     This is the lid to his coffin.

                                                        King Tuts bed.

                    This was the bed they carried King Tut in for the burial parade.

                                           These pictures are things found in the tomb.

                                                     His honeymoon chest.

                                                    Picture of King Tut and his wife.

         They think this may be part of his staff .To serve him in the after life.

Hope you enjoyed the tour as much as we did . Have a great week.


  1. What a neat exhibit! I have always wanted to go see it but never had the chance! Thanks for taking us along! :)

  2. It is hard to imagine that they made such beautiful things so long ago and they have withstood the passing of time.

  3. Looks like a really neat exhibit! I agree with you; he is kinda gross! But not too bad for being dead all these years!
    I really like the necklaces. So ornate and beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

    I'm so happy you found my blog. Thanks for commenting :)

  4. Hi Michelle~
    You did a great posting about seeing the exhibit of King Tut. I haven't gotten around in blog-land much, but I had to stop by & tell you thank you for visiting me & leaving the sweet comments. *Hugs*

  5. Fantastic, thanks for sharing the photos Michelle. I love history!

  6. I love going to exhibits like this. Never been to this one though. Great pictures. And I didn't think Tut looked too gross but I'm sure up close and personal I would have felt differently. Thanks so much for sharing.
