We still remember the 2012 exhibition devoted to Tutankhamum, a beautiful reconstitution of Tutankhamum’s tomb covering over 4500-sqm at Paris Porte de Versailles. In 2019, ancient Egypt enthusiasts will be happy with a great exhibition out of the Grand Egyptian Museum, one of the biggest museums dedicated to ancient Egypt. Under construction near the Gizeh Pyramids, the museum is said to display a collection of 100,000 items and covering about 490,000-sqm!
While the museum is said to open in 2022, the collections displayed across the world, in an exhibition including 160 items, most of them being reproductions, in order to not damage the original ones.
Displayed since March 2018 in Los Angeles, the exhibition should come to Paris before going to London, Washington, Sydney, Seoul, Philadelphia, Chicago, Tokyo and Osaka, a world tour that should last 7 years.
According to the Egyptian government, reproductions are the occasion to highlight its legacy and the future of its museum while protecting these relics from the past that have been weakened in the 20th century!
Meet on March 20, 2019 at the Grande Halle de la Villette.
