George Washington, King Tut, and concerts!!!

Discover the Real George Washington: New Views from Mount Vernon
On display Feb. 22 - May 29, 2011

Learn about George Washington as a young surveyor, dauntless warrior, entrepreneur and presidential first. This new, traveling exhibit from Mount Vernon features forensic models of Washington at various ages; short films by the History Channel and computer interactives; portraits and decorative arts; period weapons; and personal artifacts, including the only surviving full set of Washington's dentures.

Experience the riches of royal life in Egypt more than 3,000 years ago in Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs.

Discover more than 100 authentic artifacts illuminating the lives of great rulers buried in the Valley of the Kings, including the most famous of them all—King Tut. See the golden sandals that adorned the feet of his mummy and the canopic jar that held his internal organs. Learn about Tut's ancestors who defined the 18th Dynasty and the pharaohs' function in Egyptian society and religion. Explore the fascinating story behind Howard Carter's discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922 and the newest scientific discoveries that provide insight into the Boy King's unexpected death. The exhibition runs through September 5, 2011.

And delve deeper into the mysteries and science of mummification in the Omnitheater film Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs. Learn about a discovery of 40 royal mummies in a single tomb made four decades before Tut was found, and what modern scientists are hoping to gain from the study of ancient DNA.
