Sydney To Host World's Largest King Tut Exhibition Outside Of Egypt
It won't be leaving Egypt again
Sydney is set to host the largest Tutankhamun exhibition outside of Egypt, with the Australian Museum set to hold a blockbuster exhibition.
Coming in 2021, the Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh exhibition marks a century since King Tut's tomb was first discovered by Howard Carter in 1922.
The exhibition should be in Sydney for a period of six months, with it currently on display in Los Angeles.
Among artefacts on display include golden jewellery, sculptures and ritual antiques - including a ceremonial bed that historians believe was constructed for King Tut's funeral.
This also includes 60 items from the tomb that have never left Egypt - and after this tour, they won't be leaving again.
A new permanent exhibition will be erected in the new Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza.
