What is a Time Window Ticket?
Long waiting times at the entrance? Rushing through the exhibition? Are the rooms are too full? For your benefit, we want to avoid these circumstances so that you can have an unforgettable experience in the best possible sense. This is why we use so-called Time Window Tickets.
Every ticket is valid for a particular time window in which you will be admitted to the exhibition. You decide which time window your ticket is valid for yourself during the booking process (online, by telephone or at an advance sales point). Should you arrive earlier or later than your booked time slot, you may have to wait at the entrance. However, all purchased tickets of course retain their validity for the day booked. After admittance, the amount of time you spend in the exhibition is unlimited, within the opening hours. We recommend that you plan approximately two hours for your exhibition visit.
Please use public transport where possible.

For visitors to the Munich exhibition there is also now a multi-voiced audio guide included in the price of admission. The guide was developed as a series of dialogues based on the records of the explorer Howard Carter by Werner Biermann. Biermann was responsible for the documentary on Charlemagne from the series Die Deutschen (The Germans) and for a documentary on Konrad Adenauer, among others. Speakers include Christian Schult, whose distinctive voice is known from countless TV documentaries, and the actress Mechthild Großmann, who has played the public prosecutor in the Münster setting of TATORT.
The audio guide is available in German, English, French, Italian and Spanish.
For children up to age 12, a children’s version is available in German, English, French, Italian and Spanish.

Tours in Bavarian dialect
Mia brauch ma koan Pharao, aber scheena war’s scho!
Today, Tutankhamun is one of the most famous ancient Egyptian rulers and even the Bavarian spirit is occasionally moved by the glamour of a king. A tour in Bavarian dialect not only allows visitors to get to know the burial treasures and delve into the history of the tomb’s discovery, it also aims to communicate the world of ancient Egypt to the Bavarian ear.
Combined tickets for entrance and tours cost €25 / concessions €22.
Public tours for adults
Our dedicated team of tour guides looks forward to unravelling the secrets of the Egyptian beliefs in gods and the afterlife for you in an easy-to-follow way. The objects in this unique burial treasure are not only fantastic testaments to Egyptian art and culture, they also served the young deceased Tutankhamun on his voyage into eternity.
Combined tickets for entrance and tours cost €24 / concessions €21.
There is a lift enabling access to the exhibition for wheelchair users and disabled people. To use this, please ask our box office staff. There are disabled toilets at the exhibition.
