KING TUT

: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh

On exhibit June 13, 2020 - January 3, 2021

Location: The Castle at Park Plaza, 130 Columbus Ave.

Exclusive member presale date to be announced in February (on sale date will be in March).

Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness King Tut’s stunning treasures before they return to Egypt forever! Museum of Science members will receive a 20% discount on tickets, available before sales open to the general public.

Nearly 100 years after the discovery that captivated the world, KING TUT: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh — the largest collection of Tutankhamun’s treasures ever to travel out of Egypt — will open at The Saunders Castle at Park Plaza in Boston for a limited engagement beginning Saturday, June 13.

The Museum of Science is the official museum partner for this immersive exhibition, which features treasures that were last in Boston in 1963, along with many new pieces that are on their first journey out of the country. Through over 150 original artifacts, KING TUT: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh explores the meaning of the items in the royal tomb and the dual storyline of its discovery against all odds. The pharaohs who succeeded King Tut nearly managed to erase him from history. Had British archaeologist Howard Carter not persisted in his quest nearly 100 years ago, the boy king’s legacy and treasures could have been forever lost to the sands of Egypt.

Nine galleries incorporate digital content, contextual material, and audio and custom soundscapes, allowing you to follow King Tut’s passage into everlasting life, discovering how his funerary objects were used on the perilous journey.

Produced by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities and IMG, the Museum of Science is the exhibition’s official museum partner for Boston.

Please note that this exhibition will be at The Saunders Castle at Park Plaza, 130 Columbus Avenue, Boston, MA 02116.

Tickets will be available exclusively from the King Tut exhibit website.
