The King returns!
A century after the famed 1922 discovery of the tomb of King Tutankhamun, National Geographic’s Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience brings the history of Boy King’s to Canada Place in Vancouver.
Moving through each of the 9 multi-sensory galleries, you’ll be taking part in 3000 years of history, from the times of King Tut to rediscovering him today. Co-producers Paquin Entertainment Group and Immersive Experiences have created Beyond King Tut in a way that it will educate and hold the interest of younger audiences while reigniting the interest of those who remember the previous wave of excitement surrounding the exhibitions of artifacts from the tomb.
As the galleries progress, the story of the ancient Pharaoh unfolds; meet his family, learn how he changed the world – his and ours, his reign and death. While his short life was noteworthy, it’s his afterlife that has intrigued generations since the discovery of his tomb by Howard Carter on November 4, 1922. Now, exactly 100 years later, guests can rediscover King Tut for themselves. From intimate passages of time, to the grand halls with floor to ceiling immersive projections history unfolds at every step of Beyond King Tut.
Too difficult to describe, Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience is a stunning exhibition that has to be witnessed in person. Visit until January 8th to relive one of the greatest discoveries of all time – the king’s tomb with all his treasures waiting inside, reclaimed from the desert sand after 3,000 years.
Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience is showing at Hall C of Vancouver Convention Centre East, 999 Canada Place, Vancouver, B.C.. Suitable for all ages, and running November 4, 2022 to January 9, 2023, the self-guided experience takes approximately 1 hour with the final timed entry one hour prior to closing. Opening hours are: Sunday – Thursday: 10am-8pm / Friday & Saturday: 10am-9pm. Reserve VIP or Timed-Entry tickets online at beyondkingtut.com/vancouver.
