Marking the first time the treasures of King Tutankhamun have visited London in over 30 years, an extensive exhibition of more than 130 artifacts from the tomb of the celebrated Pharaoh and other Valley of the Kings ancestors will visit London from 15 November 2007. London is the only European city to host the treasures.

Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs is a collection of artifacts from the tomb of King Tutankhamun and other ancient royals. The exhibition is organized into 11 different galleries in the "bubble" at Londons O2 complex, and takes guests on a chronological journey of King Tutankhamun's period in the 18th dynasty.

Unlike the 1970's exhibition, which drew 1.8 million visitors to the British Museum, the current exhibition includes objects from King Tutankhamun's ancestors and relatives. Key items include King Tutankhamun's Royal Diadem (crown), King Tutankhamun's Coffinette, Tjuya's Sarcophagous (thought to be King Tutankhamun's grandmother), and many other priceless treasures and jewelry. All objects in the exhibition date back to the 18th dynasty and are more than 3,300 years old. The London exhibition marks the final time any objects from King Tutankhamun's tomb will travel outside of Egypt. So, don't miss this unique opportunity!

Please note waiting time to view the exhibition will be approximately half an hour Monday to Thursday and approximately one hour Friday to Sunday.
