The Discovery of King Tut recreated the awe and marvel of the moment of discovery. Visitors entered an overwhelming treasure trove to discover new worlds and new wonders, and learn about and study the treasures. Using state-of-the-art technology, the exhibition recreated a piece of the fascinating, bygone exotic empire on the Nile.
The tomb and treasures of Tutankhamun was faithfully reconstructed to scale, giving visitors a realistic impression of the overwhelming opulence of the offerings meant to serve the king on his magical journey into the Underworld. More than 1,000 replicas of the most important finds have been reconstructed by master Egyptian craftsmen using traditional techniques, and were admired at the exhibition.
The Discovery of King Tut was on display at the GRPM May 16, 2015 through February 14, 2016.
