Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience, is a new exhibition built in collaboration with the National Geographic Society, commemorating the 100th anniversary of one of history’s most significant archaeological discoveries. And guess what?! Beyond King Tut will be held in the Vancouver Convention Centre East THIS October, making Vancouver the first Canadian city to host the highly anticipated exhibition.
Beyond King Tut by National Geographic will transport viewers on a time-traveling trip filled with sight, sound, and intrigue through the realm of King Tut—the boy who reigned as Egypt’s pharaoh more than 3,000 years ago—and the discovery of his tomb and treasures in 1922. The discovery of King Tut’s intact tomb caught the world’s curiosity, and the mystery surrounding the tomb continue to resonate today. The exhibition, which draws from the National Geographic Society’s storied archives, combines the power of cinematic storytelling with soaring images made possible by state-of-the-art projection mapping to immerse viewers in the golden king’s world like never before.
Paquin Entertainment Group and Immersive Experiences are producing Beyond King Tut. The celebrated Beyond Van Gogh and Beyond Monet shows, which have garnered over 3 million people worldwide, are part of Paquin Entertainment Group’s exhibition portfolio.
The award-winning virtual reality experience “Tutankhamun: Enter the Tomb” will be featured as an optional add-on experience alongside Beyond King Tut. The groundbreaking experience, created by immersive cinematic storytelling company CityLights and voiced by acclaimed English actor Hugh Bonneville, whisks guests through a photorealistic version of King Tut’s tomb and all its treasures, just as archaeologist Howard Carter and his financier Lord Carnarvon discovered it when they first peered inside in 1922.
In addition to the debut of Beyond King Tut, National Geographic will mark the 100th anniversary of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb in November 2022 with a documentary and a story in National Geographic magazine. Something that many of us wannabe Egyptologists will be thrilled to see.
