Great interest in ancient Egyptian civilization arose in modern times following Napoleon Bonaparte's expedition to Egypt in 1798. The Egyptian museum houses the largest and most important material sources on ancient Egyptian civilization. The most important monuments in the Egyptian museum are the treasures of King Tutankhamon. In 1980 the treasures of King Tut were displayed in San Francisco. After this trip to San Francisco the Egyptian Authorities decided the treasures would not leave the Egyptian museum. Fortunately the Egyptian Art Center, a private Egyptian Company, began a project to produce exact replicas of the King Tut Treasures to be displayed outside of Egypt. These wonderful treasures have been displayed in Japan, Canada, and the USA. Now Capitol International Productions has made arrangements with The Egyptian Art Center to bring these incredible artifacts to your event.
