The Discovery of King Tut at Union Station
The Discovery of King Tut at Union Station – August 21, 2014
Kansas City’s Union Station is sponsoring the North American premiere of “The Discovery of King Tut, His Tomb and His Treasures.” Join the Ambassador Club as we tour the exhibit and enjoy the realistic recreation of the tomb and his treasures. More than 1000 replicas of the most important finds have been reconstructed by master Egyptian craftsmen. Learn about the history of Tutankhamun, who became a pharaoh at the tender age of eight, but died under mysterious circumstances at age 18. His successors erased his name from all monuments and he faded into obscurity. Unknown and forgotten, he lay for almost three and one half millennia in the Valley of the Kings until British archeologist Howard Carter discovered his tomb in 1922. Each visitor will enjoy an audio tour that will narrate the fascinating story of King Tut.
After our morning tour, we’ll enjoy lunch at Harvey’s in Union Station. We’ll then continue our day with a guided history tour of Union Station, which is celebrating its’ 100th Anniversary in 2014. The tour tells the story of Union Station and how it not only became a historic monument for Kansas City, but also a key transportation hub for the United States.
