Discovering King Tut’s Tomb Brings Ancient Egypt to Life at Luxor Hotel and Casino

Imagine Exhibitions' new immersive exhibition, Discovering King Tut’s Tomb is now open for visitors to experience at Luxor Hotel and Casino. The exhibition celebrates the 100th anniversary of renowned Egyptologist Howard Carter’s epic discovery of King Tutankhamun’s tomb - the most preserved of any pharaoh to date - and recounts the story of Carter’s finding, shedding light on the rich world of ancient Egyptian civilization.

Tom Zaller, President and CEO of Imagine Exhibitions, said: “This exhibition takes you on a journey of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb. I have been fortunate enough to travel to Egypt and it is a magical place. My hope with this exhibition is that we can, just for a moment, transport guests to the Valley of the Kings along the Nile River, and introduce them to one of the greatest archeological discoveries of all time. And what better place to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the discovery than at the Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.”

The immersive display begins with a passageway to the burial chamber, taking guests on a journey along the Nile River and unfolding with animations that illuminate the process of mummification and its significance to ancient Egyptian culture. Additional galleries trace the 100 years of King Tut and explore archeological practices today. Pods of virtual reality chairs enhance the visitor experience, allowing guests to take a deeper dive into the exploration of King Tut’s tomb.

Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada Makes Las Vegas Teen’s Theme Park Dream Vacation Come True

Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada recently teamed up with Cityneon Holdings’ Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N inside Treasure Island Las Vegas to surprise a local wish teen and his family with a dream vacation to the theme park capital of the world.

Sixteen-year-old Erick, a high school junior who goes by his middle name of Josh, wished for a trip to Orlando, Florida. At the Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. inside Treasure Island, the family was met with a surprise celebration at which Josh’s dream of being immersed in a universe of Super Heroes was revealed.

“They say it takes a village to raise a child, but we here at Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada believe it takes a community to grant a wish, said Scott Rosenzweig, President & CEO of Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada. “We couldn’t grant wishes like Erick’s without community partners such as Cityneon. We’re grateful for their partnership and can’t wait to see the pictures from Erick’s wish trip to Orlando, Florida.”

For the theme park trip, Josh and his family stayed at Give Kids the World Village, a Florida nonprofit resort that provides no-cost lodging to children with serious conditions and their families. The family  spent the next week exploring Orlando’s multiple theme parks, including Walt Disney World, featuring the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction at EPCOT, and Universal Studios.

As a Super Hero fan, Josh was excited to experience the numerous Marvel-related attractions at Universal Studios, including Marvel Super Hero Island® in Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

Josh identifies especially with Iron Man, the Super Hero known for having a repaired heart. Diagnosed at birth with congenital heart disease, Josh was an infant when he had his very first heart surgery. At just 3 years of age, he underwent another surgery, after which Josh went into kidney failure and has been on dialysis and oxygen ever since.  Like Iron Man, Josh lives heroically with his condition and has remained positive despite the numerous medical challenges he faces on a daily basis.

Josh loved sharing his theme park experience with his family, who has given him the support, care and encouragement he needs throughout his medical journey. The memories of a special trip to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios will help provide the Las Vegas teen the strength to continue to battle congenital heart disease and kidney failure.

“The Neon Museum brings great distinction and honor to Ward 5 and all of Las Vegas,” stated Councilman Cedric Crear. “As a Las Vegas native, I applaud the Museum’s commitment to telling the stories of our city’s history – including those stories that might be lesser known, like the civil rights effort in Las Vegas or the unique cultural contributions of community members. These are important historical stories for us to celebrate and for people to hear, now and for generations to come. I congratulate the Museum on its 10-year anniversary and look forward to supporting its future endeavors.”

“Receiving this recognition from the city of Las Vegas and Councilman Crear is a great honor, because The Neon Museum would not exist had it not been for the support and efforts of the city,” said Aaron Berger, executive director of The Neon Museum. “We are incredibly fortunate to have our city leadership partner with us to preserve, present, and educate locals and visitors about the history of our great city.”

With respect to his work, Sigman reveals, “I photograph from the sidelines, standing off center in a place where I can watch what is going on. At no time am I looking for something, having arrived at a place with a preconceived notion of what I want to photograph. If I go to the Las Vegas wetlands or the Forest of Fontainbleau outside of Paris, I have some notion of the kinds of pictures I will make. When I pick up a book by Bruce Chatwin, I know something of what to expect from his writing, but I am not seeking something specific. I photograph as I read.”
