ADMISSION & DIRECTIONS

IMPORTANT – we operate a timed entry system. Please arrive within the entry times displayed on your ticket e.g. between 09:00 – 09:30. Due to the popularity of the exhibition it may take up to 30 minutes to pass through security and enter the exhibition. Please do not arrive early as this will extend your waiting time.

Please check the weather before your visit and prepare accordingly. Due to the popularity of the exhibition you may be outside in a line before entry. Saatchi Gallery’s listed status means that there are limitations in the temporary structures that can be erected around the entrance, therefore we cannot provide outdoor shelter.

The Funerary Mask is at its home at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and will eventually go on view with the entire Tutankhamun collection at the forthcoming Grand Egyptian Museum. It is a very popular object that travelled in the 1970s and many people have fond memories of it. Because it is such an iconic world treasure, the Egyptian government has decided it will never travel again so that it can remain for posterity.

The artefact you see in advertising for this exhibition is the Canopic Coffinette of Tutankhamun – a small vessel which was used to hold the internal organs. It is one of the 150 original artefacts which will be on display as part of the exhibition at Saatchi Gallery from 2 November 2019 – 3 May 2020.
