Experience the magnificence and wonder of the world's greatest discovery of ancient treasure. Be there at the discovery, explore the ante-chamber filled with its treasures, and enter the burial chamber to witness Howard Carter raising the golden coffins. In the Hall of Treasures marvel at the superb facsimiles of some of Tutankhamun's greatest golden treasures, including the famous funerary mask. Finally come face to face with Tutankhamun's mummified body. Featured in several major television documentaries, The Tutankhamun Exhibition has recreated Tutankhamun's tomb, treasures, and mummified body using sight, sound and smell. It's an amazing experience - spanning time itself.
