Relive the splendor of ancient Egypt through the eyes of three of its greatest explorers. Through dramatic re-enactments, you'll experience Italian explorer Giovanni Battista Belzoni's removal of the colossal bust of Ramses II from the pharaoh's memorial temple in Thebes in 1815, Jean-Francois Champollion's translation of the Rosetta stone in 1824 and English archeologist Howard Carter's discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922.
