On December 15th and 16th, Viking River Cruises and Willamette International Travel sponsored clients’ entry to “The Discovery of King Tut”, an exhibit displayed at Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) with replicas of hundreds of items found in his tomb since the early 20th century. It began with a brief introduction of how King Tut’s tomb became discovered and had life size displays of a few of the rooms and how they were originally found. After an overview, there were replicas from each of the rooms in his tomb, each of which were so detailed it felt like you were seeing the originals!
