Explore Cranbrook’s Tutankhamun: “Wonderful Things” from the Pharaoh’s Tomb

Have you ever wondered how it felt when Howard Carter first stepped into the lost tomb of King Tut? From now until September 3rd, that sensation can be yours at the Cranbrook Institute of Science’s latest exhibit: Tutankhamun: Wonderful Things’ from the Pharaoh’s Tomb.

The exhibit, a product of ten years’ worth of meticulous planning and execution, features 131 hand-crafted replicas of the Pharaoh’s treasures.

As the Cranbrook Institute of Science explains: “While the experience of seeing the original artifacts is unsurpassable, the sheer number of replicas in the Tutankhamun: “Wonderful Things” from the Pharaoh’s Tomb collection far exceeds the number of original objects from the tomb which have been allowed to leave the Egyptian Museum for view abroad.”

Indeed, the volume and the arrangement of the replica artifacts is striking. With dramatic lighting, the exhibit evokes a sense of wonder and a reverence for the ancient past the objects represent.
