LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience, a new exhibition developed in partnership with the National Geographic Society, will soon bring the magic and mystery of Ancient Egypt to Los Angeles. Opening on the centennial of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb (Nov. 4, 1922), the exhibition brings the archives of the National Geographic Society to life in a multi-gallery journey through the boy king’s story.
Beyond King Tut combines the power of cinematic storytelling and soaring imagery to invite visitors into the golden king’s world like never before. Tickets go on sale today at www.beyondkingtut.com (location to be revealed).
With nine galleries to explore, wind through the story of a young boy whose name still looms large, and how he changed the ancient – and modern – world. Sightsee among the wonders of modern and ancient Egypt. Meet Ancient Egyptian gods like Ra and Anubis before descending into King Tut’s burial chamber and joining his quest for immortality. Relive one of the greatest discoveries of all time – the king’s tomb with all his treasures waiting inside, reclaimed from the desert sand after 3,000 years.
“Beyond King Tut will be a must-see for anyone interested in Egypt and the history of King Tut,” said Kathryn Keane, vice president of public experiences for the National Geographic Society. “New technologies are making it possible to fully immerse people like never before in important stories from our past, allowing us to develop connections and understand history’s influence on our present and future generations.”
Beyond King Tut is produced by Paquin Entertainment Group and Immersive Experiences, including the creative team behind the King Tut artifact exhibitions that attracted millions of visitors around the world. The exhibition debuts in Boston and Washington D.C. this summer.
“It was such an honor to tour King Tut’s treasures around the world, but those objects have returned to Egypt forever. Beyond King Tut brings together some of that same team along with the all-stars of immersive art to present one of the world’s most fascinating stories in a whole new way, with no boundaries! Guests will get to experience the splendor of Egypt all around them and voyage with us to the Ancient Egyptian afterlife,” said Beyond King Tut creative producer Mark Lach.
Paquin Entertainment Group’s exhibition portfolio includes the acclaimed Beyond Van Gogh and Beyond Monet exhibitions that have attracted more than 3 million visitors around the world. Montreal’s world-renowned Normal Studio will bring to life the wonders of ancient and modern Egypt from National Geographic Society’s photo and video archives, presenting a journey through Egypt in a way no one else can tell it.
