What people are saying about TUTANKHAMUN: Treasures Of The Golden Pharaoh

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Interesting Experience My husband and I attended this event as we missed the event when Tutenkhamun came to London in the nineteen seventies. The artefacts were extremely well displayed although the gallery was rather crowded. To have the legend print high on top of the cabinets, made for easy reading, an inspired idea, I was slightly surprised to see quite a lot of the exhibits were not solid gold, as I had always thought, but just covered with gold flake. Having said that, the marble dishes and ivory furniture was extradinarily beautifully crafted as were many of the pots, jewellery and the King's own weaponry. The site of statue of Tutenkhamun was staggering, very well staged. Considering that the artefacts were over 3000 years old most were in superb condition and have been extremely well preserved and well cared for. The the black sargophusus had great appeal with it intricate decoration, looking as though it had just been made yesterday. The only down side was the terrible behaviour of other visitors pushing to take photos and then hogging the space to take video film, very selfishly. The gallery could of policed this more carefully.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing exhibition of items and historical facts I bought this for a birthday treat for my daughter as she has always been mesmerised by Egypt & The Pharoahs. The exhibition itself was well put together and had loads of interesting facts to read, as well as the incredible artifacts to view and admire. I felt the exhibition was very good value for money and we took over 2 hours to get round and see everything. However what I didn’t understand, was why we had to book time slots, presumably so numbers could be controlled, yet we were rammed in like sardines. Was ridiculous trying to get anywhere near the glass exhibits most of the time. We thought we would hold back and let the crowds move on a bit, but then heard the pre-talk going on, and another large group of people then appeared. We were booked at 1.30pm, but they took ages to let us in, we were all queuing in the rain. I think it was about 2pm before we got inside the building, this delay probably accounts for the fact it was so packed with visitors. I think the exhibition is definitely worthwhile seeing, and we did thoroughly enjoy the visit, apart from the overcrowding, which really needs addressing and numbers limiting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I was looking forward to this event since first hearing about the tour . My daughter & I went - it just amazes me that these are over three and a half thousand years old . The detail on them the colours are truly amazing - the history of Tutankhamun has always fascinated me - One the down side I would of been happier paying more to see these wonderful exhibits houses somewhere bigger than the Saatchi gallery - they were so close together & the volume of people cramped in made it difficult to see . You were either being pushed out the way so they could take pictures - I felt truly sorry for the school children who were unable to see these historical artifacts in all their glory - because the adults wouldn’t move for them - how about having one day a week for school children only & let them learn the history of the child king - I have rebooked more tickets because I feel I need to see it again so I’m hoping it won’t be so crowded - The price for the headset - lower it it’s not as thou your not making money you are

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Misled by title, thought we would see the face mask as illustrated on advertising matrials and ticke In my opinion there were far too many people in each batch shown into museum. This meant it was very crowded and difficult to view the exhibits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic exhibition Fabulous exhibition, with several treasures never before out of Egypt. Immersive experience, beautifully staged and presented. And an experience to treasure for me personally, as was belated fathers day present, so quality time with my dad. Only downside was that it was more crowded that I expected, given the timed tickets, and about 15-20mins queueing before getting in to start , dark inside which added to the drama, but may not be so good if claustrophobic.
