Walk Like an Egyptian . . .


Can’t make it to Egypt?  Don’t miss the King Tut exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.   It opened this past Sunday and runs until April 16, 2012.  I saw it in Dallas a couple of years ago and it’s a wonderful exhibit; there’s a lot to see and learn about. 

To prepare for your visit be sure to check out some books on the subject.  Here are a few suggestions:

For kids:

 King Tut’s Tomb by Donald Nardo

 Inside the Tomb of Tutankhamun by Jacqueline Morley

For adults:

Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharohs by Zahi Hawass (the exhibit book)

Tutankhamun: The Life and Death of a Boy King by Christine El Mahdy
