Saving Kings Tombs in the Valley

Certainly, the most important decorated tombs should be closed to protect the wall decorations but there must be a way of sealing off the painted burial chamber of Tutankhamen from tourists standing in the antechamber. Also, tombs who's decoration is badly damaged such as Merenptah and Siptah's tombs might be well suited as examples for tourist to tour to get an idea of scale and remaining decoration of a king's tomb.

The most important tombs should be reproduced for tourists to explore the replica tombs. The tombs of Thutmosis III, Amenhotep II, Amenhotep III, Ramses I, Seti I, Ramses IV and Ramses VI should be closed.
