King Tut arrives in Grand Rapids this spring

King Tut exhibition

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) West Michigan is about to become home of the Midwest premiere of “The Discovery of King Tut Exhibition.” The exhibition will make its Great Lakes Region debut at the Grand Rapids Public Museum on May 16, 2015.

Featuring more than 1,000 scientifically produced recreations hand-crafted by Egyptian artisans, The Discovery of King Tut recreates what it was like for Howard Carter and his team when they first discovered the tomb of Tutakhamun in 1922.

Grand Rapids is the exhibition’s third stop on its U.S. tour. Tickets will be on sale this coming spring. Museum members will receive discounted admission. Visit the Grand Rapids Public Museum website for more information.
