Tutankhamun's belongings wonders seven foreign countries in 2019
France exhibition will kick off from 23 March to 15 September 2019
Published in Daily News Egypt on 08 - 01 - 2019

Following several international exhibitions, the belongings of the most famous pharaoh, Tutankhamun, are to roam six European countries in 2019, after they are displayed in France in March.
The exhibition, named King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh, will find a new temporary home in Paris, after it has been resting in Los Angeles, California, from March 2018. The France exhibition will kick off from 23 March to 15 September 2019.
Subsequently, it is planned to journey to six other countries, including Japan, the UK, Australia, and South Korea, where they are to be revealed in 10 cities. The temporary exhibition witnessed a huge success in the United Stated. Local media reported that it attracted more than 500 million visitors since it opened in March.
The exhibit will open its doors in the Grande Halle at La Villette, in cooperation with the Grand Exhibition Museum, which will hold its soft opening this year.
King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh will display: ‘150 fascinating original objects found in 1922 in the tomb of the most famous pharaohs, the majority of which have never left Egypt before,' according to the Paris official website of the convention and visitors bureau.
The ministry of antiquities previously stated that the exhibitions includes 166 relics belonging to King Tutankhamun, yet some of them are redundant.
Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Anany had formerly said the value of insurance coverage for the 166 pieces of King Tutankhamun's belongings which will be exhibited abroad is estimated at $862m.
King Tutankhamun's showcased belongings were originally transferred from the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in Cairo. The relics include alabaster pots, wooden boxes, and statues of the pharaoh.
The increase in the temporary exhibitions abroad is an effort on the part of the Minister of Antiquities Khaled Anany to revive tourism in Egypt, and create a source of income for the ministry.
Local media reported that the ministry's income from the past LA exhibition reached $5m, with four dollars going to the ministry for every ticket sold.
Anany explained the reason behind choosing Tutankhamen's belongings to journey across Europe is that people have a love story with the young king pharaoh.
Before the museum opened its doors to the public in March, all 3,500 tickets of the exhibition were sold out, which led the museum to extend its opening time for three additional hours after the official working period, as regulations forbid hosting over 100 persons inside the museum at a time.
The first exhibition showcasing Egyptian artefacts in a foreign country, as part of the minster's new policy, kicked off in Toronto, Canada, last year, and displayed the heritage and monuments of the Egyptian Fatimid era, while another demonstrated the artefacts of the cities of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus, which were accidentally discovered under water after being lost for 1,000 years, whereas a third exhibition will soon be inaugurated for jewellery from ancient Egyptian eras.
Noteworthy, the ministry inaugurated another pharaohs belongings' exhibition in 2018 in Monaco, of which only two pieces belonging to Tutankhamun were displayed.
