Before entering Exhibition Hub Art Center Atlanta, the 50,000-square-foot immersive arts center that hosts Tutankhamun: His Tomb and His Treasures, our knowledge of Ancient Egypt was feeling a little fuzzy. After leaving the exhibition, we not only took an eye-opening journey through the discovery of the young pharaoh’s tomb, but heightened our understanding of Ancient Egyptian culture!
The exhibit is just a short trip from downtown Atlanta and has plenty of parking, making it easily accessible! With multiple long weekends and holiday breaks coming up, Tutankhamun: His Tomb and His Treasures offers the perfect opportunity to set off on a new adventure!
Plus, those who purchase tickets to Tutankhamun: His Tomb and His Treasures from November 24th to November 27th can enjoy 30% off tickets for any date with the code FEVERBF30.
With over 1,000 reconstructed objects on-site, we wondered if it was going to be challenging to fully appreciate each and every replica. However, thanks to an accessible and entertaining audio guide, we were able to get the most out of the experience!
From Tutankhamun’s ornate jewelry to his infamous golden mask, the audio guide provided incredible context about each item within the exhibit. Plus, you can follow the guide at your own pace, and decide whether you go in order (which we’d recommend) or randomly via items that spark your interest!
We were also blown away by the sheer quality of the reconstructed artifacts. Unlike some replicas, it was clear that these had been faithfully and painstakingly reproduced: each piece was detailed, dazzling and true-to-size.
The flow of the exhibition made our experience even more enjoyable, as everything appeared thoughtfully organized (think no overcrowding or bumping into other visitors). Even Tutankhamun’s tomb was arranged just as it was when British archeologist Howard Carter discovered it back in 1922!
Of course, we had to take a trip to the gift shop before heading out. There were plenty of keepsakes that called our names, but we settled on the cutest little Egyptian pharaoh rubber duck.
