TUTANKHAMUN – His Tomb And His Treasures

Coming to The RDS in Dublin, is an enchanting exhibition "TUTANKHAMUN – His Tomb And His Treasures" that allows visitors to experience ‘first hand’ the moment archaeologist Howard Carter entered the treasure-laden burial chambers of Egypt’s most famous Pharaoh, Tutankhamun.

Tutankhamun – His Tomb and His Treasures’ has already delighted over 1,700,000 visitors across Europe and it is very exciting that Dublin will be hosting such an exhibition which will open on the 18 February at Dublin’s RDS in the Industries Hall.

Tutankhamun – His Tomb and His Treasures’ carries visitors on a captivating journey through time into the lost wonders of ancient Egypt and reveals the epic story of the discovery of the forgotten tomb of the ‘Boy King’ who died under mysterious circumstances aged only 19.

With the assistance of leading Egyptologists and using sketches and diary notes made by Howard Carter and original photographs taken by exploration photographer Harry Burton, three burial chambers and an extensive collection of the most important treasures of Tutankhamun have been authentically recreated.

For the first time, Irish audiences will have the opportunity to look through Carter’s eyes and experience the amazing moment of discovery for themselves.

Over 4,000 square metres of exhibition space and state-of-the-art multimedia technology will bring to life the story of Tutankhamun and the fascinating cultural and spiritual world of ancient Egypt; its funerary cults, gods and mysterious hieroglyphic script.

Replicas of 1,000 burial artefacts, intended to equip the young Pharaoh on his journey to the afterlife, have been painstakingly reproduced to scale by expert Egyptian craftsmen and can be viewed in the recreated burial chambers and in an extensive and detailed display.

These include jewellery, cult objects, amulets, coffers, chests, chairs, weapons, a stunning golden chariot, large golden shrines and the iconic death mask; a rare and beautiful sight not seen in the UK since the original mask was displayed at the British Museum in 1972.
