This exhibition has been on show in Melbourne for months, but is finishing up in December, so we booked in to see it before we missed it like we missed the Titanic and Pompeii exhibitions. It was an expensive day all up with entry tickets, short movie, parking, lunch, and souvenirs ($173) but as Ken said, it was our only chance to see any of this, as we'll never get to Egypt. It took us about two hours to wander around and look at everything. If I'd been on my own, it would have only taken me about half an hour, as I'm one of those people who looks at the exhibit, reads the label,looks at it again, and goes to the next one. Ken likes to linger on each exhibit, examining them all closely!
So we bought a few souvenirs...
The amount of souvenirs at shows like this is mind blowing. We were disappointed to see so much of it was made in China, so that's why I chose the two items above that according to the labels, are actually Egyptian!
