Sydney will be one of 10 cities on a world tour to mark the centenary of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922 by British archaeologist Howard Carter.
The Tutankhamun exhibition is being presented by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities and global events leader IMG. The Australian Museum is the exclusive host of the exhibition in South East Asia with the support of Destination NSW.
Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh features more than 150 objects from King Tut’s tomb, including 60 treasures never previously displayed outside Egypt. The exhibition also features advanced display technology and the latest science about King Tut's life, health, death and lineage.
Produced by IMG, it is the last time these objects will travel outside Egypt now that the new Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza is nearing completion.
