Exhibition: Tutankhamon the tomb and his treasures (Madrid)


With video.

Madrid is host to a three dimensional exhibition called “Tutankhamon the tomb and his treasures” where visitors can learn more about the life and death of this young pharaoh by means of the reproductions of these objects created by Egyptians craftsmen.

Madrid's Casa de Campo is host to a life-size replica of Tutankhamon's tomb, in a new concept of exhibitions and for the first time in 88 years the tomb and its treasures have been recreated three-dimensionally in their original form.

The exhibition offers visitors the opportunity to know how the archaeologist and Egyptologist Howard Carter worked relentlessly until he uncovered the tomb in 1922.
