College offers King Tut tour
Discover the secrets and dazzling treasures of Egypt’s most fascinating
ruler on Monday, Oct. 16, with a tour of the King Tut exhibit at The
Field Museum in Chicago, sponsored by Manchester College. The alumni
tour is open to the public, departing at 8 a.m. from the College Union
and departing from the museum at 6 p.m. Indiana time, with a boarding stop at the
Center Centre in Warsaw.
The opportunity to see firsthand the treasures from King Tut’s tomb and
his relatives is rare; many of the artifacts in the exhibit have never
before left Egypt. “Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs,”
concludes in four months, when it returns to Egypt. Learn more about the
exhibit at The Field Museum’s website
or click on King Tut, above.
The $60 fee covers admission to the exhibit and transportation. The bus
will make one stop each way for refreshments. Meals are not provided;
the museum has a bakery and McDonald’s.
