KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Discovery of King Tut exhibit has been touring Europe since 2008. It’s been to 20 cities and more than five million people have seen it in Europe. And now it’s coming to North America, and Kansas City has won the coveted premiere due to the success of the Princess Di exhibit at Union Station.
Premier Exhibits, which puts on the King Tut exhibit, was so impressed with how Union Station handled Princess Di, they chose Kansas City to host the King Tut exhibit first. It will be the largest exhibit Union Station has ever hosted.
These are not artifacts from the actual tomb, but more than 1,000 reproductions painstakingly re-created by Egyptologists to give people the experience of walking into King Tut’s tomb for the first time.
The exhibit opens at Union Station on April 4 and runs through Sept. 7.
