Re: Tutankhamun in Zug

A similar (possibly the same) event was held in Zurich some years ago.

I still can't believe how my friend and I totally missed that the artefacts were in fact replicas and actually thought we were going to see the real thing!

We couldn't believe how lax security was (read there was none) for such an important event of this nature, nor how few people there were... That is until days later when, on closer inspection of my treasured ticket stub, I realized that it was a replicas event.

No matter. Very enjoyable it was in spite of that although I'm glad I got to see the real artefacts exhibition held in London many moons ago.
