Embark on a voyage through time with Discovering King Tut’s Tomb, an immersive exhibition at Luxor Las Vegas that transports visitors back to the historic moment in 1922 when archaeologist Howard Carter uncovered the perfectly preserved resting place of the ancient Egyptian Pharaoh, Tutankhamun.

The exhibit meticulously recreates the atmosphere of the tomb with its treasure-filled antechamber, hallways adorned with hieroglyphics, and the burial chamber itself, where the boy king rests in his sarcophagus alongside his iconic death mask.

The immersive experience extends beyond the visual, offering an optional audio guide for an additional fee. This audio guide provides visitors with Howard Carter’s exact words about his monumental find, enhancing the exploration with historical insights and details.

As you navigate through the exhibit, you’ll follow in Carter’s footsteps, peering through the antechamber wall, unlocking the secrets of the burial room, and coming face-to-face with the mummy of Tutankhamun. Marvel at the artistry of the nested coffins and gaze upon Tut’s notorious death mask. The exhibit also delves into the significance of mummification in preserving and honoring pharaohs, providing a fascinating glimpse into ancient Egyptian culture.

The treasures on display, sparkling with gold, reveal not only the opulence of the boy king but also offer insights into the customs and beliefs of ancient Egypt.

Utilizing modern technology, the exhibit incorporates virtual reality, allowing guests to explore the rooms and artifacts as they were left over 3000 years ago.
