King Tut, welcome to the digital world.
One hundred years after the remarkable discovery of King Tut's intact tomb and treasures, the famous mummy is coming to Vancouver in a fully immersive exhibit.
In partnership with the National Geographic Society, the Beyond Tut: The Immersive Experience will arrive at the Vancouver Convention Centre East on a newly-announced opening date of Nov. 4 2022 as its first stop on its Canadian tour. The show's opening date coincides with the 100th anniversary of the discovery of the intact tomb of King Tutankhamun.
The exhibit uses sight, sound and state-of-the-art projection mapping to create a photo-realistic version of King Tut's tomb and treasures as first seen at the time of its discovery in 1922.
