Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience, a new exhibition developed in partnership with the National Geographic Society, debuted in downtown Los Angeles at Magic Box LA on November 4 on the 100th anniversary of what is still considered one of the greatest archeological discoveries of all time.
The exhibition, first opened in Washington D.C. and Boston this past summer will continue to San Diego once it completes its Los Angeles journey at the end of February.
Still the only intact ancient Egyptian royal tomb ever found, Beyond King Tut at Magic Box at the Reef is a life changer.
Beyond King Tut allows visitors to explore the archives of the National Geographic Society in a multi-gallery journey through the boy king’s story.
With nine multimedia galleries to explore, explorers found themselves immersed inside the story of a young boy who ruled as pharaoh more than 3,000 years ago.
Within the exploration for King Tut’s tomb, his burial chamber and the discovery of the king’s treasures waiting inside.
King Tut is a voyage through the underworld in a sweeping cinematic experience.
This exhibition goes beyond a traditional artifact display using the power of photography and technology with a life changing VR experience provided by Dreamland XR.
