About

TUTANKHAMUN: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh presented by Viking Cruises at the Saatchi Gallery includes 150 artefacts - with 60 items being shown outside Egypt for the first time.

Discover Tutankhamun

Learn the fascinating story of how British explorer Howard Carter and financier Lord Carnarvon unearthed the ancient Egyptian tomb of one of the most famous pharaohs in history – an archaeological find that would have never happened had Carter not persisted in his quest.

Explore the meaning behind the burial items found with the boy king and how the objects were used in his passage to everlasting life.

Gold close featuring encrusted red and blue gems, as well as a black gem depicting a beetle.

Things to see

Nine galleries feature digital content, contextual material, audio and custom soundscapes.

Look out for objects including a gilded wooden bed with carved lion feet, a life-sized statue of the king that guarded the entrance to his burial chamber, and a gold miniature coffin which contained Tutankhamun’s liver after it was removed during the mummification process.

How to get Tutankhamun tickets

This exhibition is expected to be extremely popular and advance booking is recommended.

The London exhibition marks the third stop of a 10-city world tour celebrating the centenary of the discovery that captivated the world in 1922. It’s the largest collection of Tutankhamun’s treasures ever to travel out of Egypt, and the last chance to see them before their permanent return to Egypt.
