Beyond King Tut in Vancouver

Beyond King Tut

Beyond King Tut is an amazing immersive experience about the famous Egyptian pharaoh. The exhibition comes to Vancouver in October 2022.

 

Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience

Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience is a new exhibition arriving in Vancouver in the fall of this year. The attraction celebrates the 100th anniversary of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb. It features huge screens that display cinematic scenes and take viewers through the fascinating story of King Tutankhamun.

At the exhibition guests have the opportunity to explore King Tut’s tomb with the award-winning Tutankhamun: Enter the Tomb virtual reality experience.

The immersive exhibition is produced and developed by Paquin Entertainment Group and Immersive Experiences, in partnership with the National Geographic Society. These are impressive companies that create spectacular events and productions (so you know what’s coming to Vancouver will be phenomenal)!

Beyond King Tut premieres this year in the United States, in Washington and Boston. Vancouver is the first Canadian city on the exhibition’s world tour!

The experience at Beyond King Tut will likely be somewhat similar to that of Imagine Van Gogh, Imagine Picasso, Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel or the Da Vinci Experience, all of which were world-class immersive exhibitions that visited Vancouver last year. Beyond King Tut will be different, for sure, but if you enjoyed any of these other events you’ll no doubt love this one too!

At the exhibition you’ll be immersed in beautiful images and scenes of gold! You’ll learn a lot too. Expect a once-in-a lifetime experience where you’ll be awed, amazed, educated and entertained!

Who Was King Tut?

King Tutankhamen was an Egyptian pharaoh born around 1341 BC. His father and predecessor was Akhenaten, who passed when Tut was only about 9 years old. Tut became king at a very young age and ruled for approximately 10 years. During his time in power, Tut restored the Ancient Egyptian religion and brought back polytheism. However, he died at the age of 19.

King Tut’s tomb was discovered in 1922 in the Valley of the Kings. The discovery sparked worldwide interest in the ancient civilization. The tomb was almost fully intact and had over five thousand artifacts inside, including the gold mask that has become a famous symbol of ancient Egypt. Scientists learned that Tut lived with a deformed left foot and bone necrosis. He used a cane and most likely died from an infection or a disease, but his life and his tomb have intrigued and educated generations of people.
