Re-creating a Moment of Wonder

“This is a King Tut exhibit for the digital age. It’s true, “The Discovery of King Tut” does not contain actual Egyptian artefacts from more than 3,300 years ago. But in an era of virtual reality, the producers say they are offering something else: a chance to re-create a moment of wonder”, wrote the Kansas City Star when our exhibition opened at Union Station’s Bank of America Gallery in April 2014. And so thousands of years after his untimely death the Golden King still mystifies audiences and generations around the world. Former Director General of the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, Egyptologist Wilfried Seipel, lets you in on his thoughts about the creation and production of the exhibition. Outstanding Egyptology icon Zahi Hawass explains new discoveries about Tutankhamun’s life and era in his latest book. And let us show you the palaces visited by the King’s Tomb and Treasures this year in Kansas City, MO, and in Azerbaijan’s capital of Baku. Come with us on the Adventures of an Exhibition.
