The Pharaoh comes to Columbus OH:
“Tutankhamun – His Tomb and His Treasures” at COSI
The exhibition “Tutankhamun – His Tomb and His Treasures” is on show over an area of 15,000 square feet at COSI from March 18th until September 4th. The reproduction of the burial treasure in its original archaeological context provides an insight into the historically unique discovery of the Pharaoh’s tomb in the Egyptian Valley of the Kings 100 years ago. The exhibition has been seen by more than six and a half million visitors in whole Europe. Tickets available now at cosi.org.
According to his records, the British archaeologist Howard Carter exclaimed, “I see wonderful things!” on 26 November 1922 as 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 five years of painstaking and initially fruitless excavation work in the Valley of the Kings, and shortly before the abandonment of the dig, the British archaeologist made a discovery that remains unparalleled to this day: a virtually intact pharaonic tomb with all its treasures.
Almost 100 years after this sensational find, the exhibition ‘Tutankhamun – His Tomb and His Treasures’ brings this historic moment and the story of the burial treasure’s discovery to life in a unique way. With 1,000 objects, graphics, movies and an audio guide, the monumental complete context is presented in an educational, exciting and entertaining manner. Six and a half million visitors have seen the exhibition so far in cities ranging from Zurich to Munich, Madrid, Budapest, Dublin, Brussels, Paris and Seoul. The exhibition is on show for the first time at COSI in Columbus, OH from March 18th until September 4th.
