1. King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh at the Grande Halle de la Villette
From the entire ancient Egyptian history there’s no pharaoh that captures the imagination as Tutankhamun. The main reason behind his fame is that his grave was found intact by Howard Carter in 1922. Due to pillaging, most tombs in the Valley of the Kings were left with only murals. Also, he was the son of that other legendary pharaoh Akhenaton which makes him even more iconic.
In collaboration with the Grand Egyptian Museum and the Louvre, you can now behold 150 original items that come straight from Tutankhamun’s tomb, including 60 items that have never left Egypt before. Is this worth an hour or two of your time? The answer is definitely yes.
The exhibition runs until the 22nd of September
Address: Grande Halle de la Villette – 211 Avenue Jean Jaurès, 75019 Paris
