King Tut replicas to display in KC

Kansas City, Mo. "Tutankhamun: 'Wonderful Things' From the Pharaoh's Time," an exhibition of 94 replicas from King Tut's tomb, will be displayed Saturday through April 21 in Level 1 Showplace at Crown Center, 2450 Grand Blvd.

At age 9, Tutankhamun ascended to the Egyptian throne in 1333 B.C. and reigned for nine years. Shortly after his burial, grave robbers attempted to plunder the treasures of the pharaoh's tomb. Once it was resealed, the tomb went undisturbed for more than 3,000 years. The tomb was rediscovered and excavated by Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter in 1922.

The items in the free exhibit include replicas of a golden throne, mask, mummy case and jewelry.

Exhibit hours are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Mondays-Wednesdays and Saturdays; 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Thursdays-Fridays; and noon-5 p.m. Sundays.
