There are three units of TUTANKHAMUN - HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES touring worldwide. Over 4.5 million people have already marveled
at the exhibition's splendor throughout Europe and Asia.
TUTANKHAMUN - His Tomb and his Treasures
The Tutankhamun exhibition breaks new ground in the presentation of cultural history, in general and with ancient Egypt in particular. On the one hand is the incomparable breadth of presentation with more than 1,000 objects - perfect replicas produced under scientific supervision - TUTANKHAMUN is more complete than any previous exhibition of originals.
On the other hand, there is the sumptuous arrangement of the treasures. Entering the tomb chamber, feeling like a discoverer with the unbelievable splendor right before your eyes, close enough to touch - it’s an adventure for all the senses that no visitor will forget.
Experience magic moments of archaeology first hand
For many years now, exhibitions of Egypt’s fascinating works of art have been very popular. The exhibition project TUTANKHAMUN – His Tomb and his Treasures will reveal yet another perspective: visitors can relive the fascinating story of the excavation, like in a novel.
However, the exhibition does have its limits. Even if it is scientifically accurate, unlike in a classic museum setting, fragile original objects requiring protection cannot be presented here. Moreover, increasing importance is also being attached to the preservation of historic monuments at conventional museum exhibitions, where originals are not exhibited for conservation reasons.
Egyptologists in particular are demanding that burial chambers, with their exquisitely painted murals, should be replaced by faithful reconstructions of the originals in order to prevent this precious world heritage from being ruined by mass tourism and to ensure that it can be handed down to future generations.
The exhibition does not aim to replace the presentation of originals, but to provide an appropriate complement. Those who have already admired the original treasures from the tomb of Tutankhamun can now experience how they were discovered.
