Exhibition Ticket - The Horizon of Khufu
Buy your tickets now for this summer’s major exhibition event in Paris! The Institut du Monde Arabe’s new exhibition plunges you into the heart of ancient Egypt on an emotion-packed journey to discover the secrets of the Pyramid of Khufu.
“The Horizon of Khufu” is an exceptional immersive virtual-reality expedition. Its unique format of 45 minutes of sensations, emotions and rich culture is the result of years of research and data collection.
The architectural reconstruction, the history, the techniques and the whole immersive universe benefit from the research of renowned historians following large-scale work on the site, carried out in partnership with the Egyptologist Peter Der Manuelian and his team at the Giza Archives Project (Harvard University).
With family or friends, come and explore the bowels of the Pyramid of Khufu, its most secret chambers and passages. The magic of immersive technology will transport you back in time to some 2,600 years before our era, to the time of the funeral of King Khufu.
With total freedom of movement, you also travel in space inside the only remaining Wonder of the Ancient World. Reproduced full-size in an ultra-realistic universe, you discover the life of the Egyptians of the Fourth Dynasty.
Passing from platform to platform, you can enter the famous Queen’s Chamber, climb to the top of the pyramid, contemplate the contemporary 360° panorama, suddenly transformed into an ancient site - discover, amazed, the omnipresence of the Nile. A new platform advances to lead you and your companions aboard a large boat. The journey continues on the sacred river… Get ready for a surprising journey! A unique experience in Paris!
