World-famous Tutankhamun exhibition arrives in Budapest

On November 8, the gates of Tutankhamun's tomb will open to visitors at the Budapest Komplex, and the extraordinary exhibition will be on show until March 2020.

Tutankhamun’s treasure: gold and mystery exhibition guides people through the magical world of ancient Egypt. During an adventurous time-travel, visitors can see the magnificent treasures of the tomb in the way British archaeologist Howard Carter first saw them in the twinkling light of a candle on November 4, 1922. The tombs open one after the other to the watching crowds.

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the tombs’ discovery, plenty of extra material and surprises will accompany the showcase beyond the more than 1,000 exhibition items.

The 2,200 square meter exhibition presents graveyard relics in their original form; the authentic copies on display were made under the control of renowned Egyptologists. The exhibition showcases the most important findings in their original splendor, and the public can also look closely at Tutankhamun’s death mask. 

What’s more, the stunning black jackal stone statues and other objects are in the same form as they were 3,300 years ago. 

The exhibition will open on November 8th until March 1, 2020, at the Budapest Komplex, under Király street 26.
