Beyond King Tut

Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience, a new exhibition developed in partnership with the National Geographic Society, commemorates the 100th anniversary of one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time.

Vancouver will become the first Canadian city to host the highly anticipated exhibition when it arrives at the Vancouver Convention Centre East this November.

Beyond King Tut

National Geographic’s Beyond King Tut will take visitors on a time-traveling journey flooded with sight, sound and intrigue through the world of King Tut—the boy who reigned as pharaoh of Egypt more than 3,000 years ago—and the discovery of his tomb and treasures in 1922.

The discovery of the intact tomb of King Tut captured the imagination of the world; the mysteries surrounding the tomb still resonate today.

Drawing from the storied archives of the National Geographic Society, the exhibition combines the power of cinematic storytelling and soaring imagery made possible with state-of-the-art projection mapping to invite visitors into the golden king’s world like never before.

According to Kathryn Keane, Vice President of Public Experiences for the National Geographic Society, “Beyond King Tut will be a must-see for anyone interested in Egypt and the history of King Tut”.

Beyond King Tut is produced by Paquin Entertainment Group and Immersive Experiences. Paquin Entertainment Group’s exhibition collection includes the acclaimed Beyond Van Gogh and Beyond Monet exhibitions that have attracted over three million visitors globally.

The North American debut of the award-winning virtual reality experience “Tutankhamun: Enter the Tomb” will be presented alongside Beyond King Tut as an optional add-on experience. Created by immersive cinematic storytelling company CityLights and voiced by English actor Hugh Bonneville, this groundbreaking experience whisks guests through a photorealistic version of King Tut’s tomb and all its treasures, just as archeologist Howard Carter and his financier Lord Carnarvon found it when they first peered inside in 1922.

In addition to the premiere of Beyond King Tut, National Geographic is commemorating the 100th anniversary of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb in November 2022 with content including a documentary and a National Geographic magazine feature.
