BOSTON — A new, immersive exhibit about the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun opens Friday in Boston’s South End.
The World Premiere of the “Beyond King Tut” Immersive Experience has been designed in partnership with the National Geographic Society to commemorate the 100th anniversary of one of history’s greatest archeological discoveries.
The National Geographic Society’s new touring exhibits include a special installation at the National Geographic Museum in Washington, D.C., (June 2022-February 2023) and SoWa Power Station in Boston (July 8-Sept. 18). Waitlist registration for priority access is open at www.beyondkingtut.com.
It’s truly an event fit for a king!
Visitors will be transported to Egypt to experience the wonders of the ancient world: The Temple at Karnak, The Great Sphinx, and an Egyptian sunrise as it ascends above The Pyramids of Giza before traveling back over 3,000 years to Egypt’s 18th dynasty.
They will enter King Tut’s tomb, imagine the life and afterlife of this boy king, meet Egyptian gods such as Ra and Anubis, and go back in time with modern-day explorers to learn more about this enduring story.
In addition to the premiere of “Beyond King Tut,” National Geographic is commemorating the 100th anniversary of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb in November 2022 with content including a documentary and a National Geographic magazine feature.
Prospective “Beyond King Tut” guests can sign up for tour date announcements and waitlist registration for priority access to tickets at www.beyondkingtut.com/.
