We know October feels like lightyears away, but we’ve got some pretty exciting news to share that might just make you save the date. An immersive King Tut exhibit is coming to Canada for the first time – and wouldn’t you know it – Vancouver is its first stop.

Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience commemorates the one-hundred-year-old discovery of King Tut’s tomb in 1922 by archaeologists in Egypt. You don’t need to be a history buff to meet the Egyptian Gods of the Underworld or travel with King Tut in his quest for immortality!

National Geographic has partnered with Paquin Entertainment Group and Immersive Experiences to map out a photo-realistic version of his tomb and treasures, so get ready to be transported back some 3,000 years ago. There will be nine galleries in total to explore!

In addition to exploring the Valley of the Kings, visitors will be able to experience many other locations in modern and ancient Egypt. Relive one of the greatest discoveries in history, meet Ra and Anubis, and more.
