“Beyond King Tut” Will Transport Audiences 3,000 Years in the Past

The new immersive exhibition is made by National Geographic and will open this summer in Boston and Washington D.C.

Immersive exhibitions were certainly an art trend that doesn’t look like it will go away anytime soon. While San Francisco’s Skylight at The Armory is getting ready to play host to a new event encapsulating the work of Pablo Picasso, on the opposite coast, visitors will get the chance to immerse themselves in the world of Ancient Egypt.

The National Geographic Society is working with Paquin Entertainment Group, the minds behind “Beyond Van Gogh” and “Beyond Monet”, to celebrate 100 years since the monumental discovery of King Tut’s tomb. The exhibition will take a deeper look at the boy who became Pharoah over 3,000 years ago, tracing it all the way back to the moment that British archaeologist Howard Carter, along with a crew of others, first opened the fabled tomb.

By tapping into Nat Geo’s extensive archives, visitors will get to experience state-of-the-art projection mapping that seeks to transport them to the world in which the ancient Pharoah lived in. “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,” said Kathryn Keane, vice president of public programming for the National Geographic Society.

“Beyond King Tut” will first go on view at the National Geographic Museum in Washington D.C. from June 2022 to February 2023, along with a simultaneous showing up at the SoWa Power Station in Boston in July.
