The lineup is stellar. Many have released a new album this year!

King Tut and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs is currently exhibiting at the Denver Art Museum. 50 objects from the tomb of the legendary ruler are on display including golden sandals straight from the king's feet!

Egypt's other legendary rulers, Khafre and Hatchepsut, have artifacts on display as well.

Did you know that Tutankhamun's mother was Nefertiti? Astonishingly, he became pharaoh when he was just 9 years old. Perhaps less shocking, he didn't live to see 20. Many speculate that his life was snuffed out by foul play.
