The most famous artifacts like his mask and golden coffin will not be part of the exhibition.

Good job you pointed that out to me, I didn't realise.   That's the problem when they always use the famous mask image as representing him.  I'm sure I heard the mask and coffin were there but they could easily have been wrong.  Oh well, after reading what will be there it still sounds well worth the visit.

Where are the mask and coffin kept?  Is it in the museum in Cairo?

It's mentioned in the FAQ, pretty well hidden. I think a lot of people will be disappointed when they find out. I was already a bit suspicious because when I was in Egypt, our guide mentioned that the mask was never to leave Egypt again.

Yes, the mask and coffin are in the museum in Cairo, where they will forever stay. In fact, most of the really valuable artifacts are not part of the London exhibition. So you have to go to Cairo to see everything. But I think it's still worthwhile to visit London. There will definitely some very nice things there.

Frolijahlover, how come you've only seen the pyramids three times if you live so close to them?

Well, there are other places which I love to visit. You know when you have something near, you always want different places.

Very true.

And for you it must just be 'normal' to have the pyramids etc. surrounding you because you have grown up with there.

Do you ever get fed up of all the tourists?

That's good then.   I've never been to Cairo so I don't know what its like, if it's different from Luxor and the smaller towns down the nile.  I'm curious to find out more about your life but not sure what to ask, hehe.  Do you live in the centre of the city?

I'm sure you will, one day. 

How does the school system work where you are?  Are you in school?

What an interesting thread! It's one of my dreams to visit Egypt one day, when I have the time and more important the money. For now I have to be satisfied with the Egyptian museum we have in Brussels and I'm also visiting the British museum in London in a couple of weeks. Someone once told me that Greece is nothing compared to what is saved in Egypt so I'm very curious and anxious to go there.

The Egyptian culture is so fascinating. To know that Tutankamon was only like a smaller farao, what must have the graves of the really important farao's been like? It's also a mysterious place, because the Egyptians were fascinated by death and did everything to keep their dead 'alive'. And then you have their symbols (like cats and scarabees) and their different gods.What I also think is very interesting is their writings, the hieroglyphs. It took us a long time to find out what they meant. There is so much to tell about Egypt, it's unbelievable!

I've never been to the British museum but I'm surely going to visit it when I go to London for the other Egyptian exhibition. I'm going to take a 15-year old girl with me, who's utterly fascinated by everything that comes from Egypt. My parents are going to give her the trip as a Christmas present.

Artanis, I also wonder what treasures must have been in the tombs of the more known farao's, like Ramses. Tutankamon was nothing compared to him. Egypt is indeed a very mysterious place and I hope we haven't seen the end of it yet. They still discover tombs. Who knows what there still lies hidden beneath the sand.

I have never seen this thread before but it was interesting to read about your travels to Egypt and your experiences. I have been fascinated by Egypt as well as its culture and history for a very long time, almost 20 years now. I have not yet had the chance to visit Egypt but one day I will!

Can't believe I just saw this thread now...a year later!  Egypt is fascinating. Anything and everything I find about it I try to absorb. It is so mysterious and ancient. I find it hard to picture it as it is now in modern times. 

Somehow I don't think I will ever get the chance to see it in person, but I LOVE hearing about it from those who have...especially from someone who actually lives there. Wow! 

So is anyone still posting from a year ago:  Frolijahlover, ElleJay, Brenda and Cristiel? Can any suggest some good videos or books on the topics?
