King Tut Exhibit in Geneva

First of all, let me say that I thoroughly enjoy museums with free audio guides. David and I visited this exhibit on a day trip to Geneva.

This temporary exhibit is on display until January 12, 2014. My advice: check it out!

As a language teacher, my favorite part of the exhibit was learning more about the Rosetta Stone:

But of course, the entire exhibit was fascinating. It reconstructed King Tut’s tomb as discovered by Howard Carter in 1922.
