Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh is coming to the Australian Museum in Sydney and is the largest and most impressive Tutankhamun exhibition to ever leave Egypt. It will feature more than 150 objects from King Tut's tomb, including 60 treasures never exhibited outside of Egypt before. This exhibition is a rare and prestigious event, which is currently on a ten-city tour around the world, and is currently on show in Los Angeles.

Included in this rare exhibition are:
Exquisite rings found on King Tut's fingers
Opulent jewellery that adorned his body
The gold sandals placed on his feet upon burial

Also in the exhibition you can learn how changing technologies have given scientists and Egyptologists new information about King Tut's 3,300-year-old mummy.

Whilst you have time to prepare ó the exhibition is not expected until early 2021 ó if the King Tut mania in Los Anglees has been anything to go by, it's not too early to mark it in your calendar and start planning the arrival of the opulent king of ancient Egypt.

This once in a lifetime Tutankhamun exhibition is groundbreaking for Sydney, and is only possible with the $50 million upgrade of the Australian Museum. Once these artifacts return to Egypt, it's expected they will remain there forevermore.
