The Educator Event will include admission to: The Discovery of King Tut presents a thrillingly unique experience that explores the legendary tomb and its treasures as they were at the exact moment of their discovery! Students will feel the rush of excitement as they step into a moment only ever witnessed by Howard Carter, Lord Carnarvon and a handful of others. This is an excellent field trip opportunity for classes in History, Art, Social Studies, Geography and World Cultures. The Discovery of King Tut presents the actual excavation itself. Using painstakingly, scientifically produced reconstructions, the exhibition showcases the magnificent splendor of priceless Egyptian treasures without ever harming the fragile, sensitive originals---which can now only be exhibited separately and are no longer permitted to tour outside of Egypt. The two part Exhibition uses media to transport students back in time to experience how Howard Carter discovered the lost tomb of King Tutankhamum after a long search. The Exhibition culminates in exact reconstructions of three burial chambers that reveal themselves just as Carter saw them in 1922. The second part provides students with the opportunity to extensively examine the most intriguing objects in the burial treasure. The cultural and historical background of the objects are detailed in a documentary film, and boxes and chests found in the burial chambers are opened, revealing their hidden contents: golden and gilded statues, jewelry and many precious stones. Saturday Night Live The Exhibition brings you behind the scenes to experience a week in the life of the cast and crew of the late night comedy sensation and pop cultural phenomenon that transformed American television. Students will be immersed in the show's fast paced production and compressed weekly schedule, and meet SNL's key players, past and present, and interact with sets, props and costumes.
