Exactly ninety years after the undisturbed burial tomb of the young Egyptian Tutankhamun was discovered by archaeologist Howard Carter, this international exhibition arrives in the new Amsterdam EXPO exhibition space. Tutankhamun, his Tomb and his Treasures runs from 29 November 2012 to 5 May 2013.
The tomb of Tutankhamun in Amsterdam
This spectacular exhibition invites visitors to step into Carter’s shoes and relive one of the greatest archaeological finds in history. Covering in excess of 3,000 square metres, the exhibition is a unique reproduction of Tutankhamun’s burial chambers and contains more than 1,000 fascinating exhibits.
The original historical artefacts housed at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo are too fragile to be moved so to ensure a near true to life experience, artefacts were painstakingly recreated by Egyptian craftspeople by hand.
