Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh - last public exhibition before final return to Egypt for good.

A Landmark Tutankhamun exhibition at London's prestigious Saatchi Gallery.

The Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh will be on display until May 2020, after which they return to Egypt for permanent and final exhibition in Cairo and are set never to leave the county again. 

The exhibition in London is presented as a narrative experience, allowing visitors to move through the galleries as though following the pharaoh's journey into the afterlife.  Beginning with the tombs preparation, visitors will go on to learn about spiritual encounters with Egyptian gods, why elaborate weaponary was buried with him, and more details about the quest to paradise.

Many of the artefacts show remarkable workmanship. Some highlights include the gilded wooden statue shrine and the gold inlaid coffinette used to store the pharaoh's liver. Over 150 original artefacts are on show - some have never been seen by the British public before.
