The mystery, the grandeur, the spectacle of King Tut is coming to Vancouver. Paquin Entertainment is proud to announce Vancouver as the first Canadian city named to host Beyond King Tut! In fact, you want to move quickly and join the waitlist registration. Not only will you receive advanced notice of tour dates, but you will also receive priority access to tickets ahead of the general public.
In partnership with the National Geographic Society, Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience, commemorates the 100th anniversary of one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time. Get ready for a time-travelling journey flooded with sight, sound and intrigue as you journey through the world of King Tut. 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 which invites visitors into the golden king’s world like never before.
Feeling a bit dusty when it comes to the historical details? King Tut, or King Tutankhamun, was the boy who reigned as the pharaoh of Egypt more than 3,000 years ago. It is believed that King Tut was only 8 or 9 years old when he became the pharaoh; he was just 18 or 19 years old when he died. As was tradition, the pharaohs of Egypt were buried with unimaginable treasures. King Tut’s tomb was discovered, nearly intact, in 1922. The treasures in his tomb surpassed more than 5000 artifacts.
Kathryn Keane, vice president of public experiences for the National Geographic Society, says “Beyond King Tut will be a must-see for anyone interested in Egypt and the history of King Tut. New technologies are making it possible to fully immerse people like never before in important stories from our past, allowing us to develop connections and understand history’s influence on our present and future generations.”
Interested in augmenting your King Tut experience? You can add on the North American debut of the award-winning virtual reality experience “Tutankhamun: Enter the Tomb”. Voiced by celebrated English actor Hugh Bonneville (if you are a Downtown Abbey fan you will recognize his voice instantly), the experience takes guests through a photorealistic version of King Tut’s tomb and all its treasures. This virtual-experience is as close as anyone can get to the real-experience archeologist Howard Carter and his financier Lord Carnarvon had when they found the tomb 100 years ago.
The attraction is produced by Paquin Entertainment Group and Immersive Experiences. Paquin Entertainment Group’s exhibition portfolio includes the acclaimed Beyond Van Gogh and Beyond Monet exhibitions that have attracted more than 3 million visitors around the world.
