For the first time in North America, Premier Exhibition’s presents The Discovery of King Tut, a remarkable presentation of one of the greatest archeological finds of the 20th century. Using over 1,000 expertly crafted reproductions of treasures discovered in Tutankhamun’s tomb, the exhibition presents this fascinating subject in an entirely new way: a thrillingly unique experience that explores the legendary tomb and its treasures as they were at the exact moment of their discovery. Visitors can feel the rush of excitement as they step into a moment only ever witnessed by Howard Carter, Lord Carnarvon and a handful of others.
The Discovery of King Tut presents the actual excavation itself, its story and its invaluable legacy. Using painstakingly, scientifically produced reconstructions, the exhibition allows the public to enjoy the magnificent splendor of these priceless Egyptian treasures without ever harming the fragile, sensitive originals – which can only now be exhibited separately and are no longer permitted to tour outside of Egypt.
