22 October 2010 – 27 February 2011
This great exhibition comes to Manchester at the Museum of Museums close to The Trafford Centre off junction 9 or 10 of the M60.
The centrepiece is of course Tutankhamun. Eighty-eight years after its discovery, the tomb of Tutankhamun is opened once more – and you can be there!
The Tutankhamun exhibition breaks new ground in the presentation of cultural history, in general and with ancient Egypt in particular. On the one hand is the incomparable breadth of presentation. With more than 1,000 objects – perfect replicas produced under scientific supervision – TUTANKHAMUN is more complete than any previous exhibition of originals. And on the other hand, there is the sumptuous arrangement of the treasures.
Three of Tutankhamun’s tomb chambers have been reconstructed true to the originals and their dimensions, so that visitors receive an authentic impression of the space. Over 1,000 replicas of the most important objects, fashioned by the best Egyptian craftsmen, can be admired there. The information about the culture and spiritual world of the ancient Egyptians – their funerary cult, their gods, their dynasties, their mysterious hieroglyphic script – has been prepared and presented with state-of-the-art multimedia technology.
