Presented by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities, this immersive exhibition will reveal more than 150 original piecesIncluding 60 items leaving Egypt for the first (and last!) time: coffins and sarcophagi adorned with precious stones such as lapis lazuli, vases adorned with hieroglyphics or even some of the toys and souvenirs of the child pharaoh that accompanied him during his burial …
