New North American tour for Egyptian exhibition

Posted on Jul 6, 2017 in What's New


MuseumsPartner of Innsbruck, Austria is pleased to announce that they will be bringing a new exhibition to North America. Pharaoh: Everyday Life in Ancient Egypt unveils the mysteries and explores the realities of daily life in ancient Egypt to look beyond popular culture’s fantasies which blur fact and fiction. This exhibition has been developed in partnership with the Lokschuppen Exhibition Centre in Rosenheim, Germany. The premiere will be at the Royal BC Museum in Victoria, Canada on May 15, 2018 and will be on display there until December 31. The Royal BC Museum was also the site for the North American premiere of our very successful we call them Vikings” in 2014 that eventually went on to tour at 8 venues in North America.

Featuring 370 original artefacts, some of them more than 4500 years old; stunning detailed models of famous pyramids, temples and homes; vivid multimedia films and interactives, ambient music, and even aromatic scented rooms. This exhibition takes the visitor to the distant past, exploring the myths and realities of ancient Egyptian culture, and brings the true land of Pharaohs back to life with the Nile as its vital artery.

Venues are being sought from interested museums and science centers in North America from the spring of 2019 onward. MuseumsPartner has secured the rights to loan the objects to the end of 2023.
