Experience the traveling exhibit of King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh, featuring more than 150 original artifacts from King Tutankhamun’s tomb, including 60 that have never left Egypt until this tour at the Saunders Castle at Park Plaza, Boston. This display of exceptional masterpieces marks nearly 100 years since the discovery of the royal tomb in 1922 by British Egyptologist Howard Carter. At the conclusion of this traveling exhibit, the artifacts will head home to Egypt where they will be on permanent display at the new Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo, considered to be one of the largest museum development projects in the world, and is scheduled to open soon.
We’ll spend the rest of the afternoon at the Boston MFA to view the permanent collection and special exhibits.
