I have just seen the Tut exhibition in london and enjoyed it
1) It is a bit of misnomer - should be Tut & people connected with him.
2) The audio guide is not good value for money in my opinion - & it says Tut has the only unrobbed royal tomb.

Yeah the thing can be a little misleading. Over here in the US they very much tried to make it seem as if they had the mask, though they only have a small, but very beautiful, coffinet that held his liver.

The Title says "Tutankhamun AND the Golden Age of the Pharaohs." So right there it should tell you, it's gonna explain some other Pharaohs too, and it did. In my opinion, it was an awesome exhibit, I went TWICE in Philidelphia. It really was amazing, gold mask or no: I can go to Egypt to see that and then some. We should feel lucky to see ANYTHING of Tut AND Akhenaten as well. I know I do. At least it's a small taste, and I'll take it.

OMG you went to it twice in Philly too? Thats amazing, and slightly creepy. I also saw it in Chicago though. I could have seen it in London but I though that would be a little much... XD

It doesn't surprise me that the audio guide is not up to much. the older british museum guides were very scholarly & were ofter cited as sources in textbooks. the Kouyunjik Gallery assyrian guide is over 140 pages & is very good.
