Today marks 99 years since the discovery of King Tut’s tomb and all of its contents. To mark the occasion, Milwaukee Public Museum Education Programs Coordinator Richard Hedderman shares insight into the King Tut display at the museum’s Crossroads of Civilization exhibit and a poem.
When visitors walk into the Rainforest Hall at the Milwaukee Public Museum, they’re greeted by the sounds of chattering monkeys, parrots and other wildlife. Richard Hedderman is the museum's education programs coordinator and is also a poet. He was inspired by the exhibit to write a poem about how fragile this ecosystem is.
