Re: Tutankhamun in Zug

This is the only mention i can find of it on the internet, off zug4you.ch, however it doesn't give a location! I guess i'll just drive slowly past the advertising board tomorrow and try and read where it is at!! I don't feel confident enough in my German to phone the number for more info.

Exhibition of replica objects from the legendary tombs of the Pharoahs






This stunning exhibition shows replicas of the most beautiful and spectacular finds from the legendary tombs of the Valley of Kings and were made by the most renowned craftsmen in Egypt.

The exhibition of some of the replicas has been make possible thanks to Dr Mostafa El Ezapy who worked on the great Tutankhamun exhibitions in Zurich, Hamburg and Frankfurt. Depending on the area of space available, up to 300 exact replicas of archaeological treasures will be on display. Smaller items will be exhibited in secure specially-made glass cases, but larger exhibits will be able to be viewed more closely.

Some will recall how the British archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun with its treasures of gold, jewellery and other precious objects in 1922 after years of searching, not to mention the death mask of Tutankhamun himself, the original of which can be found in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Replicas of all these treasures also convey some of the fascination of the original objects.

The exhibition is open every day from 11 am until 7 pm from Thursday 11 until Sunday 21 April. In buying a ticket, all visitors also contribute to a charity which helps handicapped children and young people in Switzerland.

Tickets are available on the day, with free admission groups of disabled visitors by prior arrangement. Otherwise tickets cost CHF 14 for adults and CHF 8 for children (including guided tour).
