About the class

What can we learn about history by asking questions? Join the Discovery Center of Idaho on an expedition through time and their King Tut: Treasures of the Tomb exhibition. We'll explore the stories we can uncover just by looking closely at and asking questions about the objects and materials left behind in King Tut’s tomb.
