Tutankhamun - His Tomb & His Treasures

A spectacular recreation of the pharaoh’s tomb and treasures

Feel the thrill of exploring an unknown world of magic and mystery as you embark on an unforgettable adventure into the realm of Tutankhamun, the golden pharaoh. A spectacular recreation of his tomb and his treasures including replica gold coffins, astonishing jewellery and stunning gilded statues, this exhibition is a must see for all ages.

According to his records, the British archaeologist Howard Carter exclaimed “it is wonderful” when on 26 November 1922 he pushed a candle through a hole in the antechamber of the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun, who died more than 3,000 years ago. After six years of painstaking and initially fruitless excavation work in the Valley of the Kings, and shortly before the abandonment of the dig, Carter made a discovery that remains unparalleled to this day: a virtually intact pharaonic tomb with all its treasures.

With 1,000 objects, graphics, movies and an audio guide, the complete story of the discovery is presented in an educational, exciting and entertaining manner. Six million visitors have seen the exhibition so far in cities ranging from Zurich to Munich, Madrid, Budapest, Dublin, Brussels, Paris and Seoul.

In Perth, the Western Australian Museum is pleased to be associated with the exhibition which has recreated the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb with a stunning array of meticulously created replicas.

Audio guides for adults and children are included in the price of admission.
