EXTENDED HOURS ANNOUNCEMENT
As the Paris showing of Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh closed on 22 September it became France’s most attended exhibition of all time. With attendance of over 1.4 million it beat the long-standing 1967 record previously held by theTutankhamun and His Times exhibition, which drew an audience of 1.2 million visitors.
With high demand for the soon-to-open London exhibit and tickets selling fast we have now extended hours for the opening weeks so you will now be able to see the Golden Pharaoh’s treasures earlier in the morning and into the evenings.
November and December opening hours now available:
Monday–Wednesday & Sunday: 9.00am – last entry 5.30pm
Thursday and Friday: 9.00am – last entry 8.30pm
Saturday: 9.00am – last entry 7.30pm
In addition to the extended hours, the exhibition will have an exciting programme of ‘lates,’ which in 2019 will take place on Friday 22 November and Friday 20 December. With music and drinks, the lates will provide the opportunity to explore the life of Tutankhamun and his treasures after dark.
2020 Lates dates to be announced.
