Tutankhamen. The history of a discovery

      Ninety years ago, an archaeological discovery turned the eyes of the world to a remote corner of Egypt where some of its most important pharaohs were buried. The discovery of Tutankhamen’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings remains a source of fascination to this day. With the exhibit Tutankhamen: The History of a Discovery, the Egyptian Museum of Barcelona pays tribute to this genuine archaeological discovery with areas dedicated to its protagonists, methods used and the media impact of the discovery, while addressing issues that have generated intense debate, such as the origin of the king himself, the causes of his death and the existence of a terrible curse. Many pieces of the Museum illustrate certain aspects of the environment of the regent and represent the wide variety of objects the Egyptians buried with their dead.

      Tutankhamón. Historia de un descubrimiento

      Pocos descubrimientos arqueológicos han despertado una admiración y un interés tan universales como el que experimentó el hallazgo de la tumba de Tutankhamon. Con esta exposición el Museo Egipcio de Barcelona rinde homenaje a aquella aventura arqueológica a través de espacios dedicados a sus protagonistas, a los métodos de trabajo que se siguieron o al impacto mediático generado por el descubrimiento. Un importante número de piezas ilustran determinados aspectos del entorno del rey niño a la vez que son representativas de la amplia variedad de objetos con los que los egipcios dotaron sus tumbas.
