If you haven't seen it already you'll want to see the King Tut exhibit at Davenport's Putnam Museum & Science Center.
“The Discovery of King Tut,” features the many treasures found in Tut’s tomb back in the 1920s — well, kind of.
The exhibit includes recreated objects and replicas of the tomb handcrafted by Egyptian artists, made out of stone, paint, wood and gold leaf.
Mark Lach has stood inside the tomb of King Tut, located in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings, but he had a few flashbacks while walking around the Putnam.
Lach, creative director of Premier Exhibitions, has overseen presentation of the touring exhibit at the Putnam and other museums. What you'll see is as close to the originals — which are displayed at a museum in Cairo — as possible, he said.
A film and audio tour guides museum-goers through the history of King Tutankhamun's short life — he mysteriously died when he was 18 or 19 — Egyptian culture and how archaeologist Howard Carter unearthed the tomb.
