Discover the glittering treasures of Tutankhamun at this absolute must-see cultural event
The legend of Tutankhamun captured imaginations globally when his tomb was unearthed by British explorer Howard Carter and financier Lord Carnarvon in 1922.
Produced by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities and IMG, and presented in London by Viking Cruises TUTANKHAMUN: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh will unveil more than 150 original objects from the tomb, 60 of which are travelling out of Egypt for the first and final time before they return for permanent display within the Grand Egyptian Museum which is currently under construction.
Come and discover the most famous of the Pharaohs, and the young sovereign’s personal belongings as you follow his passage into everlasting life.
Following record-setting appearances on the first two stops of the worldwide tour, sell-outs are expected and advance booking is highly recommended.
