King Tut exhibition at Trafford Centre

Have just got back from an excellent few days at Manchester.  I took son up to see the King Tutankhamen exhibition at the museum at The Trafford Centre.

This was really good with a film about King Tut and his family and then a film about Howard Carter and how he found the tomb of King Tut.

These are just a small selection of treasures from the tomb, I would recommend if you have the opportunity to see this display go it is well worth a visit and well laid out.  I have been to the  Cairo museum and seen some of the treasures and this exhibition is a very good replication of the treasures.  I am hoping to take Mr up to see the exhibition before it ends as it is an event not to be missed.
