Discover the glittering treasures of Tutankhamun before they return to Egypt forever! Come and discover the most famous of the Pharaohs and the young sovereign’s personal belongings as you follow his passage into everlasting life.
The legend of Tutankhamun captured imaginations globally when his tomb was unearthed by British explorer Howard Carter and financier Lord Carnarvon in 1922. This exhibition, TUTANKHAMUN: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh has been produced by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities and unveils more than 150 original objects from the tomb, 60 of which have travelled out of Egypt for the first and final time before they return for permanent display within the Grand Egyptian Museum (which is currently under construction). It should though be noted that the famous ‘Death Mask’ is not in this exhibition. For further details, please check the web site – www.tutankhamun-london.com
