TRAVEL THROUGH HISTORY
This exhibition was brought to Panama, the 60th country to receive it, in celebration of the 90th anniversary since the discovery of King Tut's tomb.
The tour begins with Cleopatra, who the museum guides describe as having had, 'some destructive moral principles'. As the story goes, Cleopatra had no qualms in how to go about obtaining power and carrying out each of her ideals. “She was a woman who spoke seven languages, really shone in the political arena and had the capability to seek out powerful men to be her romantic partner and help her carry out and preserve her empire,” recounted one of the staff at this exhibition.
Trace the history behind Ramses II, ranked as one of the pharaohs who built the most temples and castles. The exhibit also has an area that shows the mystical beliefs in those times.
In the second hall you will find some of Tutankhamun's belongings, such as jewelry, chairs, beds, sandals, and even the sarcophagus of the pharaoh's unborn children. His wife (who was also his sister) suffered from several diseases and spontaneously aborted the children, leaving no one to inherit the throne.
The tour begins by showing a film. A museum guide will then explain the meaning and history behind the items in each of the six exhibition halls, connected by the theme of the pharaohs and families who ruled over ancient Egypt.
All of the objects found on display are exact replicas of the articles found in the tomb of Tutankhamun 90 years ago. It took the Egyptian Tarek Ragab five years to create and build the entire collection.
