Caroline has been wanting to go to the Tutankhamun Exhibition, which is on at the Museum of Museums, The Trafford Centre, Manchester since it began back in October.
Today we finally made it. The whole Tutankhamun thing has never really interested me but after today I have a newfound interest in it all.
I've heard about all the treasures that were found in the boy king's tomb but until I actually saw this exhibition I had no idea exactly what that meant. I wouldn't know where to begin to try and describe the vast array of beautiful objects, exact replicas to be precise, that were on display today. There was naturally a whole lot of information to take in too.
It was impossible to take any good photos because of the dim lighting in the museum. That dim lighting though enhanced the spectacle of all the treasures that were on display to perfection.
I really enjoyed this trip today and if anybody is interested it's on until the latter end of March. It then goes onto Brussels. Here's a link to the official website.
Thank you, Caroline, for opening my eyes to the wonders of ancient Egypt. We had a good day today didn't we?
