Hotels near Melbourne Museum Tutankhamun Exhibition 2011

Melbourne Museum is located just north of the Melbourne CBD, set among the lush greenery of the Carlton Gardens and next to the historic Royal Exhibition Building. The award-winning Melbourne Museum houses a permanent collection in eight galleries, including one just for children. Highlights of the permanent collection include the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre, a complete skeleton of a blue whale, a living rainforest, the racehorse Phar Lap and an IMAX Theatre on site. There are also regular major visiting international exhibitions.

The Tutankhamun exhibition is headed for Australia for the first time, and opens in April 2011. Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of The Pharaohs has drawn over seven million visitors in the United States and Europe in the past five years.

Revel in the splendour of Ancient Egypt as you view a dazzling array of possessions unearthed from the boy king’s tomb. See Tutankhamun’s golden canopic coffinette and the crown found on his head when the tomb was discovered. Learn about the extraordinary discovery of the tomb and the belief and burial processes of ancient Egypt. View results from the latest scientific testing conducted on Tutankhamun’s mummy and what it is telling researchers about his life and death.

If you plan to take a trip to the Melbourne Museum or take in of the international exhibitions, why not stay the night at one of the nearby hotels and enjoy the local shopping, restaurants and all Melbourne has to offer.
