What you will see there…
It is an unparalleled experience that is offered to the public in the northeast of the capital. An exhibition that would probably not have occurred without the discovery of the royal tomb in 1922. Today, to celebrate the centenary of the discovery, and in honor of the famous pharaoh, the Grande Halle of La Villette invites you to the exhibition of the century! Incredibly well preserved pieces are staged. Then, we can see the golden bed of the Pharaoh, his sandals of the same metal and statues with undeniable refinement. The immersive exhibition unveils in particular the statue of the guardian, the solar falcon and other works testifying of this exceptional civilization. Do not be confused by the semi-darkness that reigns in the premises, it contributes to the mystery!
