Tutankhamun

The Discovery of King Tut & Tutankhamun – His Tomb and His Treasures

SC Exhibitions is the producer of the "The Discovery of King Tut" (in North America) and "Tutankhamun – His Tomb and His Treasures," an exhibition touring with three units around the globe.

Millions of visitors around the world have been fascinated by our reconstruction of the boy king's tomb, featuring around 1,000 replica artefacts crafted in Egypt.

Our exhibitions offer visitors a once-in-a-lifetime insight into the archaeology of ancient Egypt. They are taken on a journey of exploration to experience the treasures of Tutankhamun and his famous tomb chambers exactly as they were when discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter. Through our exhibitions, they relive that magical moment of discovery.

Along the way, our guests are guided by a free audio tour based on Howard Carter’s diaries, read educational wall panels by Egyptologists and watch videos produced for the exhibition.

History in Colour

The excavation of Tutankhamun's tomb was documented by Harry Burton through his iconic black and white photos, now found in almost every book published about the boy king. As part of our New York exhibition, we brought these black and white photos to life, transforming them into colour and animating them. Watch our 15 part mini-video series highlighting these images; each video runs for about two minutes and features the real story of this great archaeological find.
