November 2022 officially marks 100 years since British archaeologist and Egyptologist Howard Carter discovered the Tomb of King Tutankhamen in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt.
To celebrate, the Las Vegas Natural History Museum is hosting a special one-night event, Journey on the Nile – the 100th Anniversary of the Discovery of King Tut’s Tomb, on Friday, November 4, from 6 to 9 p.m.
This once-in-a-lifetime experience will bring to life ancient Egyptian society with characters, rituals, and pageantry, along with a special lecture and presentation by guest archaeologist and acclaimed Egyptologist, Dr. Ken Kastle, also known as “Doc Phineas” of The History Channel’s popular television show, “Pawn Stars.” In his discussion, Dr. Kastle will showcase the evolution of archaeology since Carter’s discovery, examining how the field has been transformed through innovation and technology.
Recommended for ages 12 and up, the event will also include a light happy hour reception, Egyptian entertainment from Shifting Sands Belly Dancing, and a special ancient Egyptian embalming experience by Educational Entertainer, Ellis Rice. A limited quantity of VIP tickets are available for a private meet and greet and papyrus autograph party with Dr. Kastle, which starts 30 minutes prior to the main event.
Tickets for this special event are limited and priced at $35 for general admission and $50 VIP and can be purchased online at www.lvnhm.org. All proceeds benefit the Las Vegas Natural History Museum and its mission to inspire a better understanding and appreciation of the natural world, the sciences, and ourselves. The event is made possible in-part by Tag Team Productions. The museum, located north of Cashman Center at 900 Las Vegas Blvd N., is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (excluding Thanksgiving and Christmas).
