Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience, developed in partnership with the National Geographic Society, has opened at SoWa Power Station. Bringing the magic and mystery of Ancient Egypt to Boston from the exclusive archives of the National Geographic Society, the exhibition invites visitors into the golden king’s world like never before. If your travels take you to Boston this summer, it’s an event definitely worth checking out, especially if you have the grandkids in tow.
As guests enter Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience, they will meet Ancient Egyptian gods like Ra and Anubis before descending into King Tut’s burial chamber and joining his quest for immortality. They will 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. With nine galleries to explore on a multi-sensory, multimedia journey, guests will wind through the story of a young boy whose name still looms large and how he changed the ancient – and modern – world. Tickets are available at www.beyondkingtut.com.
Beyond King Tut has aligned with The American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE), whose mission is to study and safeguard Egypt’s cultural heritage.
“For 100 years, the world has been fascinated by the story of the Boy King. The contents of his tomb, which come to life in this experience, have advanced the fields of archeology and Egyptology unlike any other discovery. We are proud to partner with the National Geographic Society on this rich experience and hope it will spark curiosity for the next generation,” said Dr. Louise Bertini, Executive Director, The American Research Center in Egypt.
