Today we went to the King Tut exhibit at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle. The PSC is on the grounds where the 1962 World’s Fair took place. You can still see some pieces and buildings from the fair!
The King Tut exhibit had artifacts from King Tut’s tomb as well as assorted sculptures from other Pharaohs.
The carvings were wonderfully intricate!
That’s a fantastic shade of blue!
Sarcophagus for a cat.
Colossal Statue of Tutankhamun.
Colossal Statue of Amenhotep IV.
Funerary Mask of Psusennes I.
This poster showed what King Tut’s tomb looked like when it was first opened.
This small boat was also in King Tut’s tomb. In the after life this would transform into a large and usable boat.
Canopic Coffinette. This held Tut’s stomach after his death and was with him in the tomb.
These gold sandals were on King Tut’s feet when he was discovered. It’s a shame they took them off of his feet though. I bet he misses them.
Welcome to Seattle where we sell soymilk and organic snacks in our vending machines.
Hey Space Needle!
So much architecture! This is a really fun part of Seattle!
There were these odd machines around the Sciece Center where you could make different wax molds.
Oh and I made one!
There was a butterfly exhibit at the Science Center as well.
These guys were hungry.
We were hungry too so we hopped over to Araya’s for some vegan Thai food!
