Description

The exhibition will celebrate the centenary of the discovery of the royal tomb by presenting a collection of exceptional masterpieces.

Fifty years after “the exhibition of the century” – which drew more than 1.2 million visitors in 1967 in Paris – it is a unique opportunity to rediscover the history of the most famous of the Pharaohs before the permanent installation of the artefacts within the new Egyptian Grand Museum currently under construction.

Presented by the Ministry of Egyptian Antiquities at the Grande Halle de la Villette, this immersive exhibition will unveil more than 150 original objects from the tomb. More than 50 pieces from this collection will travel for the first and last time out of Egypt.

Come and discover many of the young sovereign’s personal belongings that accompanied him in the two worlds that are life and death.
