WHAT IS NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC’S BEYOND KING TUT: THE IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE?

Descend into King Tut’s tomb, 100 years since its historic discovery and join him in his quest for immortality. Experience all of this and more in a story 3,000 years in the making.


WILL THERE BE ARTIFACTS ON DISPLAY?


Beyond King Tut is not an artifact exhibition. It is a dramatic and immersive projection experience that takes visitors back in time and into the world of Tutankamun in an exciting new way. The experience starts with a journey that winds visitors through visual galleries to learn about the king’s life, descend into his tomb, and even enter a recreation of his burial chamber. The final room greets visitors with soaring projections of King Tut’s treasures, larger than life with the most cutting-edge clarity available, showcasing all the exquisite detail and artistry of these ancient items.

Beyond King Tut goes BEYOND a traditional artifact display and uses the power of photography and multimedia to create a time traveling adventure of discovery!
