Walk like an Egyptian when King Tut exhibit comes to Denver

It might not be the exotic destination of Egypt, but for the next 6-ish months, Denver will offer visitors the opportunity to walk like an Egyptian, or at least see how they lived. I'm excited to get the opportunity of a sneak media preview tomorrow of Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs.

The widely acclaimed and record-breaking King Tut exhibition is featured at the Denver Art Museum. Dates for the King Tut exhibit have already been extended from June 29, 2010 through January 9, 2011. Revel in the splendor of ancient Egypt as you view a dazzling array of more than 130 treasures spanning over 2,000 years of ancient Egyptian history, including 50 artifacts from the tomb of King Tut. This will be the only Rocky Mountain appearance before the boy king's treasures return to Cairo.

I'll be (hopefully) overnighting at the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center, one of many downtown Denver hotels offering Egyptian-themed packages. The Hyatt Regency is featuring 45-minute Egyptian Aroma Therapy Body Wrap treatments -- I guess so you can feel wrapped like an Egyptian?  I'll try it out and let you know how it feels!
