Going to Egypt can be a pricey trip. However, when you are in Vegas, you would probably not have to go anywhere else. The King Tut Museum is a small place that acts as a recreation of the real tomb of King Tutankhamen. It would make you feel like you are really standing inside a pyramid in Egypt. Visitors often visit the Gift Shop and get some artifacts home so that they can keep a memory of this place forever.

There are many reasons why you must visit this museum. It is located at the Luxor hotel but would give you a very desert like feel on entering. You would get some history lessons or simply get amazed by the way the Pharaohs created their extensive burial chambers. Therefore, it gives a nice small trip to the visitors. It is open every day from 9 am to 11 pm while on Fridays and Saturdays, it is open from 9 am to 12 am. The entry fee is merely $10 for all. You do not have to make any reservations for getting to this place. Simply visit the Luxor Hotel & Casino on The Strip and enter straight to the King Tut Museum.

The unique selling point of the museum is the authentic recreation of the original burial chamber of King Tut, which has been called the biggest archaeological finding of our times. The tour to this museum is self guided and you can easily explore the treasures of King Tut in this museum. The doors of this place are open for all and you must come here to spend an hour before starting your night (or day). Ideally, it is good for any young or old soul. You will also get a special audio presentation that would tell you how Howard Carter found the chamber of Tut. The tour would hardly last 20 minutes, so it can be a small recluse on the Strip when you have had too much of wine, dine and partying.

The King Tut Museum is located on the Mezzanine floor, directly on top of the main floor. The Museum is an exact reproduction of the original chamber and that is why you would love to be here.
