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.

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.
