Tutankhamun: a superstar in Budapest

A sensational discovery in 1922 turned the unknown pharaoh Tutankhamun into a superstar. In 1922, the archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the burial chambers of the ancient Egyptian king with their vast treasures - an event that caused a worldwide sensation. Eighty-seven years later, a spectacular exhibition makes it possible for everyone to play the role of discoverers and experience Tutankhamun, his tomb and his treasures first hand. The traveling exhibition is visiting Hungary for the first time and you can visit it at Budapest's VAM Design Center until April 25, 2010.
