The opening of King Tutankhamun’s intact tomb 100 years ago captivated the world with its riches and clues about the ancient quest for immortality. Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience combines the power of cinematic storytelling and soaring imagery to invite visitors into the golden king’s world like never before.
Produced in partnership with the National Geographic Society, this much anticipated exhibition will bring the magic and mystery of Ancient Egypt to Vancouver beginning Friday, November 4th for a limited run at the Vancouver Convention Centre East.
Beyond King Tut takes visitors on an immersive cinematic journey to Egypt to witness ancient wonders of the world, like the Temple at Karnak and the Great Sphinx, all in stunning high-resolution detail. Audiences then gaze upon a brilliant Egyptian sunrise over the Pyramids of Giza, before traveling back in time 3,300 years to the 18th dynasty and the age of the Golden Pharaohs when King Tut ruled.
With nine galleries to explore, wind through the story of a young boy whose name still looms large, and how he changed the ancient – and modern – world. Meet Ancient Egyptian gods like Ra and Anubis before descending into King Tut’s burial chamber and joining his quest for immortality. Relive one of the greatest discoveries of all time – the king’s tomb with all his treasures waiting inside, reclaimed from the desert sand after 3,000 years. This event will make ancient history come to life!
