“Not much here”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

I was disappointed at these displays but I could be tainted having been to the museums in Cairo, Valley of the Kings, etc. Not to mention what you can see at the museums in London. There are only a few pieces to view. If this is your only chance - take it and dream of international trips in your future.

“Pretty cool if you have the money to spend”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

Very interesting and goes well with the Luxor theme. A little pricey for how small it was. If you are a history buff and love this kind of thing then its great. But, if you are looking for something to do in Vegas there are better things to be seen.

“An Amazing Replica that is Truly Missed”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

I am sad to say that when I visited the Luxor last year the King Tut Exhibit was no longer there. So sad and heartbreaking. It was truly a magnificent experience for someone in love with ancient Egypt. As a child I looked in awe at images of the underground (not in a pyramid) of the Boy King's treasures and when I went it was magic and I was in awe. An excellent replica of King Tutankhamun tomb. I do wish they would find a permanent location for this exhibit.

I saw King Tut tour sometime between 2006-2008 and I was disappointed in that. Sure it has the REAL artifacts, maybe 10 to 15 were actually his things but most of them from his era or similar to the ones in his tomb. I can only clearly remember KT's bust, a dagger, a necklace and a small coffin in his image. Where as with the replica exhibit that was previously in the Luxor I felt immerse in the wonder and beauty of King Tut's funerary treasure rooms.

I visited this King Tut's Tomb and Museum a very long time ago but the date on Trip Advisor would only go back to Oct. 2012.

“Going back in time.”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

Not quite sure what to think when we went, but was extremely impressed with the quality of how things were put together. It makes you feel as though you were truly inside a pyramid and seeing what this must have been like when they first opened things. Very worth seeing!

“Tut's Tomd is realistic”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

The Luxor has King Tut's Tomb and Museum on the mezzanine floor above the main floor. It is a great experience. It is even better if you have read the book by the discoverer of the tomb. The book talks about opening the door and discovering all the marvelous treasures inside, including the golden coffin and the golden mask of King Tut. The Tomb and Museum at the Luxor gives you a realistic and wonderful idea of what it really must have been like. The Luxor's display is like many of the photographs in the book and appears to be a exact and realistic portrayal of the real thing. It was a great experience and should not be missed.
