“I took my son, age 6 to see the Tut exhibition at the...”

Written on: 30/05/2008 by Blanchardfamily2001 (31 reviews written)

I took my son, age 6 to see the Tut exhibition at the O2, we had tickets for 2.30-3.00pm entrance. Arrived at 2.45 and waited and waited, as school party was allowed in and 5 others; we waited and waited. 3.15 we were allowed up the escalator. No apology and the staff were abrupt and unhelpful.

So at a King Tut Exhibition we waded through 3 "chambers" of non Tut artifacts, closely followed by a security guard (was this because I had a camera around my neck? that I was secretly photographing… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/05/2008 by petepsy (20 reviews written)

I went on a Bank Holiday Monday, for this extra privilege the price of a ticket was put up another £5. So at a normal price of £15 it became £20. In addition I heard it was necessary to have an audio commentary. So there was a further £4 on top. The narrator was Omar Shariff who I'd read in one review had dulcet tones. To be frank in my opinion it was the voice of an ageing man who sounded a bit wheezy. Perhaps he smokes I thought.
The exhibition has about 130 items to look at. And… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/05/2008 by stranger101 (1 review written)

Great for most of the family, although small children and older people may get tired. Overall a quite expensive but very enjoyable day, as long as you are interested in Egyptian history. The rest of the O2 is very good as well. Would definitely recommend… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/05/2008

It is worth seeing if you are interested, if not, it may be a bit too long. It is absolutely fantastic if you place things into context. Make yourself aware of what you are going to see and put it in a time perspective! You will then be amazed and will be able to appreciate how advanced the Egyptians were in relation to other cultures of the same period. Look at the craftsmanship, the colours, take a good look around and see how well preserved everything is. Great items from the gift shop… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/03/2008

Overall it was a good trip and the build up was a little bit hyped. By the time you got to the King Tut exhibits I think there were only 4 rooms covering this.
It felt like the exhibitors were just giving you a taste!
The gift shop was the most expensive and tackiest I've ever seen! it really let the exhibition down… Read Full Review

“If you are going to travel any distance think twice. ”

Written on: 20/03/2008 by GLP (1 review written)

If you are going to travel any distance think twice.
A lot of money and not a lot to see.
The 02 is large, cold and expensive. They could do so much more with it. What a disappointing exhibition. Traveled up from Dorset expecting a exhibit like the one I heard about in "77". The artifacts are small and no "death mask" the main thing we went to see. All the flyers and promotions show pictures of what you think are the mask, but are in fact a canopic coffinette of 12" high (it is beautiful). And… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/03/2008

We were very excited about the Tutankhamun Exhibition but we were very disappointed with the result. The much publicised death mask etc. were not even in the exhibition. The hype said Tuthenkamun arrives in London everything points to seeing the real artifacts most are missing what a let down as this attraction is not cheap. I agree with other comments also on having to pass through the shop on exit this is full of over priced tat overall very poor… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/03/2008

Really disappointed that the famous blue and gold mask was not on show. the exhibition is very expensive and we would not recommend this for families. Of course you have to come out via the shop with was also very expensive example a small guild book was £12. Can't really say there was any good points as the bad points over take it all, but will say we didn't have to queue. Bad points, where do we start, very expensive and then you need to pay extra for the head sets… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/02/2008 by steveszalay (1 review written)

Nice golden tomb of his mother in law. Queuing was awful
The exhibition itself was like IKEA with audio guides. I thought the blue and golden mask was his tomb or maybe a death mask - NO - it is his liver jar and is 12 inches tall - a real let down. Stick to the British Museum… Read Full Review

One of the greatest treasures of the ancient world and that's the only comment you have to say of the exhibition?
