At Halle 622 Zurich
The Pharaoh comes to Zurich
The exhibition ‘Tutankhamun – His Tomb and His Treasures’ is taking place at Halle 622 in Zurich. After a closure due to the Covid situation it is opening again from early March until 20th April.
Over an area of 2,000 square metres you will be able to see a reproduction of the burial site and treasure in its archaeological context and gain an insight into the historic discovery of the Pharaoh’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings 98 years ago.
Pharaoh Tutankhamun, died more than 3,000 years ago and it is thanks to British archaeologist Howard Carter who made the discovery on 26th November 1922, that one of the most historic finds ever was made. It then took five years of painstaking excavation work in the Valley of the Kings, before he finally unearthed the virtually intact tomb with all its treasures.
Tutankhamun – His Tomb and His Treasures Exhibition
Nearly 100 years on, the exhibition ‘Tutankhamun – His Tomb and His Treasures’ brings the story of the discovery of the burial treasure back to life in a new and exciting way. With 1,000 objects, graphics, movies and an audio guide, the exhibition is both educational and fun.
So far six and a half million visitors have seen it all over the world in places as diverse as Munich, Madrid, Budapest, Dublin, Brussels, Paris and Seoul – and now it can finally be viewed in Zurich. The Tutankhamun exhibition enables you to see and experience Howard Carter’s important finds – so don’t miss this unique opportunity!
