The exhibition 'Tutankhamun: tomb and treasures' is a spectacular reconstruction of the tomb of Tutankhamun and the treasures found inside, as discovered by Howard Carter in November 1922. The reproduction of the funerary treasure in its original archaeological context provides a unique insight into the discovery of the tomb of the Pharaoh in the Valley of the Kings 97 years ago.
According to his records, on November 26, 1922, British archaeologist Howard Carter exclaimed: "I see wonderful things!" When he introduced a candle through a hole in the antechamber of the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun, who died more than 3,000 years ago. After five years of meticulous work in the Valley of the Kings, and shortly before the abandonment of the excavation, the British archaeologist made an unparalleled discovery to this day: a pharaonic tomb virtually intact with all its treasures.
Throughout more than 2,000 square meters of exhibition, visitors will have the chance to discover all the details about the history of Tutankhamun and the excavation work in the Valley of the Kings. In addition, visitors will get to explore three burial chambers of the pharaoh just as they were found in 1922, not to mention over 1,000 pieces that make up the treasure of the chamber where Tutankhamun's body was discovered. Here, you will be able to find the Golden Mask, one of the most precious jewels from Antiquity to the present day. When seeing all these jewels and treasure for the first time, you will find yourselves traveling back in time to the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb. A didactic experience, true to reality with enormous scientific rigor.
