WHE (World Heritage Exhibitions) is the creator behind Ramses & the Gold of the Pharaohs, an acclaimed international travelling exhibition developed in collaboration with the Egyptian Government.
This exhibition pays tribute to the legacy of the esteemed Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses II, who governed Egypt approximately 3,000 years ago.
The textual content and historical framework presented in the exhibition, currently hosted at the Australian Museum in Sydney, underwent meticulous scrutiny before embarking on its global tour, which commenced in late 2021. Since its launch, the exhibition has attracted over 1.5 million visitors.
One specific segment within the exhibition references the geographical territories of Libya to the West of Egypt and Palestine to the East. This section aims to provide visitors with a contextual understanding of Ramses the Great, focusing on the conflicts surrounding Egypt's borders during his reign.
It is important to note that the exhibition does not intend to convey any political assertions. Its sole purpose is to illuminate the remarkable accomplishments and historical significance of Ramses II.
WHE upholds the exhibition's curatorial authenticity and, consequently, has no plans to modify the exhibition's textual content.
Australian Museum Statement
As the local host of the exhibition, the Australian Museum will follow WHE’s final determination of the wording.
