An exhibition that can’t be missed. If you have never been to Egypt and gone to the Cairo Museum to see the Tutankhamun exhibit, now is your chance! It has been brought to South Africa and is on show at Silverstar Casino in a 2000 sq venue. The adventure begins as soon as you arrive with an illustrated story presentation of the exploration and excavation by British archaeologist Howard Carter of Tutankhamun historical Valley of Kings tomb find.
On hand at the exhibition are more than 1000 perfect replicas produced under scientific supervision of the treasures. You get to enter the tomb chamber with the splendour close enough to touch. The impression of space made by the tomb in its original state can only be experienced at this exhibition: virtual archaeology makes worlds accessible that in reality no longer exist in their entirety.

As the son of the god-king Akhenaten, Tutankhamun became pharaoh at the tender age of eight, but died under mysterious circumstances at about the age of 18. His successors erased his name from all monuments, meaning that he was not recorded on any list of kings and faded into obscurity. Unknown and undiscovered, he lay in the Valley of Kings for almost 3,500 years until Howard Carter discovered his tomb.
The exhibition is open EVERY DAY till the 15th March 2015.
