19th February 2020 - All Day
Saatchi Gallery, London
Commemorating the centenary of the discovery that captivated the world, the largest collection of King Tutankhamun’s treasures ever to travel out of Egypt will be at the Saatchi Gallery in London for a limited run beginning Saturday 2 November 2019 through until 3 May 2020.
Produced by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities and IMG, and presented in London by Viking Cruises, the TUTANKHAMUN: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh world tour features more than 150 original artefacts from Tutankhamun’s tomb, with 60 on their first journey outside Egypt. Visitors can discover the legend of the golden king before the historic treasures return to Cairo to be permanently housed with Tutankhamun’s full collection at the new Grand Egyptian Museum.
The legend of Tutankhamun captured imaginations globally when, in 1922 his tomb was unearthed by British explorer Howard Carter and financier Lord Carnarvon. An instant worldwide sensation, public fascination surrounding the boy king – and the only Ancient Egyptian royal tomb ever found intact – has continued for decades, with exhibitions in 1972 and 2007 drawing record crowds of well over one million visitors in London. Those exhibitions contained under 55 items from Tutankhamun’s tomb.
Following your visit to the exhibition some free time in the local area of Kensington and Chelsea will be available to take a look around the shops or grab a bite to eat in one of the many cafes.
