INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The King Tut exhibit at the Children's Museum opened to rave reviews Saturday. But it wasn't just the Tut exhibit that impressed visitors. The museum has two Egyptian exhibits going on at the same time. People we talked to loved them both.
After weeks of hearing about it, the public got it's first glimpse of the King Tut exhibit. They weren't disappointed.
"It's so cool, the way they have it set up, everybody needs to come," Laurie Adam said after visiting the exhibit.
Christian Frump talked of the most interesting things he saw in the exhibit, "All the gold, all the tombs and stuff."
The exhibition features more than 100 artifacts from the tomb of King Tut and other ancient Egypt sites. The pieces span 2,000 years of Egyptian history.
"They have a lot of stuff in here. I am amazed they brought all those things," Rehab Morsi said.
Morsi drove in from Connersville with her family. Born and raised in Cairo, Egypt, Morsi has seen her native country's ancient treasures before. Despite that, she was amazed by the exhibit.
"The whole family is enjoying a very nice day. They did a great job in both modern day Egypt and ancient Egypt as well," Morsi said.
That modern day exhibit allows kids to go shopping at an Egyptian market, they can make jewelry and learn about modern day Egyptian culture. After the museum closed, the exhibit became a starting point for a special party.
The museum invited people who work in the Travel and tourism industry to see both Egyptian exhibits.
Marsha Neidnthal works for AAA. She attended the after party, "We also sell tickets for the museum at a discount for AAA members. It's a great benefit for to see it and tell the public about it."
And like the museum visitors earlier in the day, these folks had only good things to say.
"Just awesome. Everybody should see this. It's just awesome," Betty, a travel agent with Hollingsworth Travel said.
The King Tut exhibit will be at the Children's Museum through October 25th.
