Presented by Van Egmond Group and SC Exhibitions in association with the Western Australian Museum
Feel the thrill of exploring an unknown world of magic and mystery as you embark on an unforgettable adventure into the realm ofTutankhamun, the golden pharaoh. A spectacular recreation of his tomb and his treasures including replicas of his gold coffins, astonishing jewellery and stunning gilded statues this exhibition is a must see for all ages.
According to his records, the British archaeologist Howard Carter exclaimed, “I see wonderful things!” on 26 November 1922 as he pushed a candle through a hole in the antechamber of the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun, who died more than 3,000 years ago.
After six years of painstaking and initially fruitless excavation work in the Valley of the Kings, and shortly before the abandonment of the dig, Carter made a discovery that remains unparalleled to this day: a virtually intact pharaonic tomb with all its treasures.
Almost 100 years after this sensational find, the exhibition ‘Tutankhamun – His Tomb and His Treasures’ brings this historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way. Six million visitors have seen the exhibition so far!
Don’t miss out.”
