Tutankhamun : Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh

Waiting List   The initial announcement was sent by e-mail, the closing date was 20 November, the event is oversubscribed.

The following text was published in the Winter 2019 Newsletter :

In this exhibition, put on to celebrate 100 years of the discovery of Tutankhamun, more than 150 original artefacts from the pharaoh’s tomb are on display, including a golden canopic coffinette, which held the king’s internal organs, and his wishing cup, which was carved from a single piece of translucent alabaster and engraved with a wish for eternal life. What is so impressive in the exhibition is the incredible craftsmanship by Egypt’s top artists of more than 3,300 years ago, who created all the equipment the young pharaoh, who was only 19 when he died, would need in the afterlife; from exquisite translucent bowls, jewellery of unbelievable precision and beauty, model boats, beetles and sandals to rough-hewn boxes to contain food for his afterlife voyage and masterpieces like the gilded wooden statue shrine.

Our visit on 6 February (which was initially announced by e-mail) was already fully booked, but if you would like your name to be added to the waiting list, please contact the office.
