Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs

Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs

Tutankhamun's gold mask and over 50 other artifacts taken from the Egyptian king's tomb are on display in this touring exhibition, a blockbuster in every city it's visited since starting in Switzerland in 2004. Not surprisingly, its performance in Tokyo hasn't disappointed: Golden Age of the Pharaohs is already the second most-visited exhibition that the Japan has ever seen. The record holder, in case you're wondering, was a 1965 exhibition featuring... Tutankhamun. If you haven't been yet, there's actually still time: though it was originally due to finish in early December, the exhibition has had its run extended until January 20.
