King Tut is coming to Melbourne (well, his stuff is anyway)



What exciting news today. One of my passions has always been Egypt and so with today's news that treasures from King Tut's tomb will be coming to Melbourne next year I am excited. The exhibition Tutankhamen and the Golden Age of the Pharoahs will be in Melbourne in April 2011. It will feature more than 130 artefacts from Tut's tomb and the tombs and temples of his ancestors.

Egypt's Ministry of Culture has said that this is the last time that Tut's treasures will ever leave his homeland.

That's exciting news indeed! I myself is fascinated with everything Egypt, and I am so green with envy now. I guess no more chance of King Tut visiting Asian cities near me :( I wonder how much the ticket costs though *lol* How long will the exhibition run?

Hi, don't know any details yet, but I am so looking forward to it, I'm lucky I only live 2 hours from Melbourne, but I think I would still go if I lived on the other side of Australia. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Hi Jamie, Thanks for following. I have always wanted to go to Egypt but probably never will so I guess this will be the closest thing to it.
