Tutankhamun – his tomb and his treasures…
    EXPO XXI – Gladbacher Wall 5
          until 20th, March 2011

A sensational discovery 88 years ago turned the unknown pharaoh Tutankhamun into a superstar. In 1922, the archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the burial chambers of the ancient Egyptian king with their vast treasures – an event that caused a worldwide sensation.

The story of Tutankhamun fascinates people to this day. His mysterious, premature death and unique legacy are the stuff of legend.

The exhibition shows the world’s only museum-quality replica of mankind’s most fascinating tomb and its treasures. Now, for the first time, after 88 years it offers the opportunity to visit the tomb three-dimensionally in its original state. Welcome to the Valley of Kings in Cologne: The Exhibition Web Site

The Exhibition In Pictures…



thumps up iconInside the exhibition: it is allowed to take photos inside that exhibition, but without using the flash. So profit from it, I did… Photos below are my propriety and there is also a copyright message in the photos. If you find a photo where you think that there is no viewable copyright in it, take care… There might be a hidden one ;-)

Or, maybe some Steganography???

Tips And Tricks For Visiting Cologne…

Amateurs of museums would love Cologne because Cologne is home of more than 30 museums. What visitors of museums should know is that it is not allowed to bring in the museums handbags, nor photo bags…

Cologne is nice to explore by walking, make sure to book a hotel not too far away from the cathedral, otherwise take the suburban, the S-Bahn… You may also use sometimes the taxi, they have fair prices in Cologne, e.g: from the cathedral to the exhibition XXI the costs were 9 € (25.01.2011)…
Use also VirtualTourist to find out what other visitors say about Cologne…

Warnings and dangers:

Cologne (Köln) bike lane

.

There are a lot of bikers in Cologne and on the pavement they have their special lane, watch out. If not used to it you might get an accident with a bike while walking on the pavement (it nearly happen 3 times to me…). The pavements in Cologne are broader than usually and this allows a special lane for bikers on the pavement, a very good solution, the bikes are not on the road and they can drive safely…

This Irish Pub has the specialty that it shows football matches in 3D on TV. My first experience with a 3D TV. Customers who want to watch the emissions in 3D ask the bar stuff and they will get furnished 3D glasses…

HowTo use exhibitions for education

.
First I created this blog for my own purpose, but then I thought also about on publishing it on a way as that it could get used as an idea on HowTo for education. That’s why you will find that much information on it, it’s created as a multidisciplinary blog and could get used as a sort of template for others in education…
.
You will find not only a description of the exhibition, but also information about the City Cologne as of the Country Germany as well as information about Egyptology and more… So it’s a valuable source…
.
That’s what you should do also with your learners, students when visiting an exhibition:
