The exhibition

Tutankhamun RealExperience® is an engaging, and, in part, immersive experience that tells the story of the journey "into the great beyond" of the most famous Pharaoh, and illustrates how the afterlife was imagined by the ancient Egyptians.

Most of the exhibits on display come from the Collections of the Municipality of Milan and from the National Archaeological Museum in Florence. The so called ‘Corredo Busca’ has been brought together for the first time: it includes a mummy, a sarcophagus, an extremely interesting 7-meter long Papyrus and the beautiful statue of the god Amon, with the features of the young Tutankhamun.

Significant ancient finds are on display along with large immersive projections accompanied by an original soundtrack and an engaging narrative backed by a solid Egyptological approach, thanks to the contribution of a prestigious Scientific Committee, chaired by Miroslav Barta and composed of Zahi Hawass, Christian E. Loeben, Liam McNamara, and Gabriele Pieke.

The exhibition tackles the mystery of death and life in the afterworld. It further sheds light on the complex and multiple features of the ancient Egyptian civilization. You will be confronted with an innovative approach to a civilization that we often mistakenly believe we know well. You will also have the opportunity to realize the enormous debt Western thought owes to it.
