Capetonian will have the opportunity to explore the mysteries of ancient Egypt on their doorstep this winter holiday.

The international exhibition Tutankhamun – His tomb and his treasures at GrandWest gives visitors the unique opportunity to experience the treasures of an Egyptian tomb at its moment of discovery.

The display begins with a presentation illustrating the story behind the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist Howard Carter, the history of Tutankhamun, and the culture of ancient Egypt.

The exhibition has faithfully reconstructed the tomb of Tutankhamun to scale. There are over 1000 reconstructed burial treasures produced by the finest Egyptian craftsmen under scientific supervision. Coupled with state-of-the art technology and video material, they provide an illustration of the culture and spiritual world of the an­cient Egyptians. Visitors will also discover what these historical finds reveal about the religion, deities, dynasties and mysterious hieroglyphics of the empire on the Nile.

This exhibition offers visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the perfectly replicated antiquities from King Tut’s tomb – all under one roof.

Tutankhamun – His tomb and his treasures will be on display in GrandWest’s SunExhibits centre (previously known as the Magic Castle), where visitors are guided through the exploration journey with the help of an audio guide included in the ticket price.

Children get their own audio guide to make their experience extra special.
