In 2010, Exhibit IQ produced a new 5,000 square foot "Treasures of Ancient Egypt" gallery including a recreation of King Tut's Tomb for the Las Vegas Natural History Museum as well as a new entrance and lobby for the entire facility.
The Treasures of Egypt exhibit is designed to recreate Ancient Egypt, beginning with a sculpture of a stone sentinel that comes to life and introduces the expedition and sweeps visitors from the Mojave Desert to Egypt's Sahara Desert. Visitors learn the importance of the Nile River to the Egyptian society through state-of-the-art interactive devices that allow one to take a virtual trip down the Nile to learn about its many riches.
Visitors have the unique opportunity to explore an Egyptian mummy by using state-of-the-art technology that allows the user to "scan" a mummy replica in real time and view actual medical imaging taken of a real mummy.
Las Vegas Natural History Museum opened in 1991 and is a private, non-profit institution dedicated to educating children and families in the natural sciences, both past and present. Through its interactive exhibits, educational programs, and the preservation of its collections, the Museum strives to instill an understanding and appreciation of the world's wildlife, ecosystems and cultures.
