Cairo - The Egyptian Museum

The Egyptian Museum, in Cairo, Egypt, is home to an extensive collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities. One of them is the solid gold innermost coffin of Tutankhamen.

Tutankhamun, or better known as King Tut, is an 18th dynasty pharaoh who inherited the throne at a young age. His reign was short-lived and upon his death he quickly faded into the sands of Egypt. Once forgotten, King Tut now remains one of Egypt’s grandest icons. The tomb of Tutankhamen is better than any other pharaoh, because of all the royal tombs, it was found mostly intact.
