The Discovery of King Tut Opens in New York City

On November 21, Premier Exhibitions 5th Avenue, 417 5th Avenue NYC, unveiled The Discovery of King Tut, a new exhibition that provides an unparalleled opportunity to explore the legendary tomb and its treasures just as archaeologist Howard Carter found them nearly a century ago.

Seen by millions of visitors worldwide in cities such as Paris, Seoul, Berlin, Amsterdam and Madrid, The Discovery of King Tut, takes you back more than 3,000 years to trace the story of the boy king who reigned for a decade and died suddenly at age 19. This thrillingly unique experience explores the legendary tomb and its treasures as they were at the exact moment of their discovery. Visitors can feel the rush of excitement as they step into a moment only ever witnessed by Howard Carter’s excavation team, view more than 1000 precisely crafted replicas and reconstructions and discover the story behind one of the most iconic moments in history.

The tomb’s magnificent burial goods have been reproduced exactly down to the finest detail by expert Egyptian craftsmen and renowned Egyptologists. These exquisitely crafted replicas and reconstructions, allow visitors to step into the wonder of the discovery as if the original excavation in the Valley of the Kings has been reopened. Crucially, the exhibition also brings together a collection that can only be seen separately elsewhere, even in Egypt: because the king’s treasures are kept in the Cairo Museum. In addition, Tutankhamun’s beautifully painted tomb in the Valley of the Kings has been stripped of everything but his mummy, the outer coffin and the stone sarcophagus. By contrast, the exhibition experience culminates in exact reconstructions of three chambers from Tutankhamun’s tomb, revealing themselves just as the discoverers saw them. A radioplay-like audio tour based on Howard Carter’s diaries, video documentaries, extensive texts and object descriptions and unhindered access to the objects together provide an exciting, as well as informative, experience for all the senses.

A series of lectures by renowned Egyptologists, and a gallery featuring the special relationship between New York and King Tut will also accompany the exhibition.

The Discovery of King Tut is scheduled to run through May 1, 2016. Tickets are $29 for adults and $20 for children. For ticket information please visit www.TutNYC.com
