Howard Carter, The Egyptologist That Discovered King Tut’s Tomb, Worked For The Cleveland Museum Of Art

Cleveland is a melting pot, and it has hosted people from all over the world… and the Cleveland Museum of Art echoes that sentiment by celebrating the vision of humans from all over the world. While its collections contain all sorts of magnificent pieces of modern art, there are a few ancient treasures in its collection that are world-renowned. Did you know that the Egyptian collection at the Cleveland Museum of Art is one of the finest such collections in the world? Believe it or not, the expertise of one of history’s greatest (and luckiest) Egyptologists helped shape this very collection. Are you brave enough to face the curse of King Tut’s tomb head-on and embrace the sensationalism of the era? Put on your thinking cap, because this tale is truly incredible.
