See this Blockbuster Experience at The Exhibition Hub Art Center in Doraville

By Hosted October 16, 2023

My family was thrilled to be invited* on a once-in-a-lifetime journey into the burial chambers of King Tut at the Exhibition Hub Art Center in Doraville. Their new exhibit, Tutankhamun: His Tomb and His Treasures allowed us to follow along, step-by-step, and experience what Howard Carter felt as he discovered this untouched tomb in the Egyptian desert. Each door opened to disclose a more jaw-dropping treasure trove than the last. This is the most complete and unique collection in the world.

A 25 pound solid gold mask inlaid with gemstones was placed over King Tutankhamun's head and his mummified remains were encased in a solid gold sarcophagus, which was encased in 2 increasingly larger, gold plated sarcophagi which were also elaborately decorated with gemstones. 

These 3 nesting coffins were than placed inside an intricately carved wooded box, encased in 3 additional gold plated tombs which were covered in hieroglyphics. 

Around this largest tomb and in other rooms were collections of all the things the king would need in his next life from his magnificent gold throne to solid gold replicas of his gods along with clay replicas of his servants. There were even 2 small solid gold sarcophagi which held the mummified remains of his 2 infant children. 

Discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter, this is the only royal burial found intact in modern times which allowed archeologists to accurately record what an Egyptian king’s tomb looked like in the ancient Egyptian Valley of the Kings. Over 1,000 true to size replicas were created for this exhibition. Skilled Egyptian craftsmen--with guidance from Egyptologists--reproduced everything right down to the finest details. Ranging from huge painted hieroglyphic walls and gleaming gold plated chariots to delicate alabaster perfume vessels and jewelry, these artifacts portray the enormous wealth and power of this young Egyptian pharaoh.  

Tutankhamun: His Tomb and His Treasures was created to allow a wide audience to access the fascinating world of the pharaohs without compromising the millennia-old originals. The exhibition includes graphics, movies, and a fascinating, very educational audio guide, which Charlie as well as the adults in our group thoroughly enjoyed.  They recommend that you allow 1 hour to view this exhibit, but there is so much to see and we read and discussed every graphic, so we were there for almost 3 hours! 

There are no interactive elements, so I would recommend this for children ages 10 and up, especially those like Charlie, who have or will study ancient Egypt in school. 

To date, more than seven million visitors have seen the exhibition as it traveled across much of Europe and Asia. Tutankhamun: His Tomb and His Treasures  will be showcased through the end of the year at the Exhibition Hub Art Center in Doraville, located in Northeast Atlanta’s metro area.  Guests will enjoy easy access from major interstates, free parking, and a café. Ticket sales are now open. For more information go to
