Very soon, “Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience” will depart from the National Geographic Museum. Don’t miss your chance to travel back in time to ancient Egypt with the boy king on his quest for immortality.
The last day to visit is February 6, 2023. Tickets can be purchased in advance online at NatGeoMuseum.org.
It’s 100 years since the discovery of King Tutankhamen’s tomb in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings, an ancient royal burial ground. Finding the intact remains of King Tut and multiple other artifacts captured the world’s attention and renewed interest in the ancient Egyptian kingdom.
The National Geographic Society has combined cinematic storytelling with high-tech projection mapping to take you back in time to the world of Egypt’s boy king. “Beyond King Tut” takes an in-depth look at the boy who became a pharaoh more than 3,000 years ago, as well as the 1922 discovery of his tomb by British archaeologist Howard Carter.
The self-guided, sensory experience is fun for the whole family — combining historical details with immersive art. Meet the gods of the underworld, find out about the ancient practice of mummification, and learn about National Geographic Explorers who continue to unmask the mysteries of the Egyptian golden king’s life even today.
“ ‘Beyond King Tut’ tells a story 3,300 years in the making, going beyond the iconic mask to bring people into his world in new, larger than life ways — guests will get to know the young boy who suddenly became pharaoh, see stunning imagery of his treasures that are now enshrined in Egypt, journey to the ancient Egyptian afterlife, and feel the thrill of discovery,” said “Beyond King Tut” creative producer Mark Lach.
