Put on your excavator's hat and dig into the fascinating realm of ancient Egypt as Premier Exhibitions' The Discovery of King Tut opens up the tomb of the world's most famous pharaoh. This meticulously detailed installation puts you in the shoes of Howard Carter, who discovered King Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922, descending into layers upon layers of gold-embossed shrines as he and his team made their way toward the child ruler's sarcophagus. As you follow in his footsteps, feast your eyes on more than 1,000 lovingly recreated statues, jewelry and other treasures from the site, including a life-sized golden chariot. Feel what it might have been like for those intrepid explorers at the exact moment of discovery, as they unlocked the secrets of one of history's greatest archaeological finds.
