Guided tour

In a tour of 90 minutes through the Grand Egyptian Museum Huub Pragt will guide you along the top pieces from the Tutankhamun collection. All 5,000 items that were found inside the young king’s tomb, first discovered in 1922 by British archaeologist Howard Carter, will be on view. One third of these artifacts have been featured previously at the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir. The GEM however plans to showcase them in a realistic manner. This enables visitors to experence the inside of the original tomb just as it was. Tutankhamun’s more domestic side will be on display. A granary and fruit, found inside the tomb, will be part of the exhibit, along with jars of beer, wine and oil. Many of the king’s garments will be shown for the first time. Because they are so fragile, it was previously considered too risky to put them on view. Then, there are the tools the king used, and the sandals he wore. It gives the visitor the opportunity to follow the life span and physical development of Tutankhamun, among more intimate glimpses into his life, including the bodies of his two stillborn daughters.
