The star of the show at the Tutankhamun exhibition, staged at the British Museum getting on for half a century ago, it captivated over 1.6m visitors from March to December (the event was extended for three months by popular demand).
What will turn out to be the outstanding moment this time round is anyone’s guess but there’s no doubting Tutenkhamun’s appeal will be as great as ever.
In residence at the gallery in King’s Road, London, from Saturday, November 2, 2019 to Sunday, May 3, 2020, the exhibition commemorates the 100th anniversary of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb by Howard Carter.
Produced by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities, management group IMG and presented by Viking Cruises it will be the final chance to see this collection of 150 astounding world heritage artefacts, dating back over 3,000 years, before they return to Egypt forever.
A new permanent resting place for the treasures is constructed at the Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
Explore the life of King Tutankhamun and the discovery that captivated the world through authentic pieces from the tomb – three times the quantity that has travelled in previous exhibitions – more than 60 of which are travelling outside of Egypt for the first time.
London is the third of 10 cities to host the treasures, following record-setting stops in Los Angeles and Paris.
