Exhibition Details
Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs is on view at the Denver Art Museum in the exhibition’s only Rocky Mountain engagement. The exhibition features striking objects from some of the most important rulers throughout 2,000 years of ancient Egyptian history, from the 4th Dynasty into the Late Period (about 2,600 B.C. to 660 B.C.). Derived from a variety of contexts, including temples and royal and private tombs, many of these artifacts had never before visited the United States prior to this exhibition tour.

The DAM has dedicated two expansive Hamilton Building gallery spaces to the exhibition. The exhibition is organized by National Geographic, Arts and Exhibitions International and AEG, with cooperation from the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities. Northern Trust is a proud cultural partner of the exhibition, and American Airlines is the official airline. A portion of the proceeds from the tour will go toward antiquities preservation and conservation efforts in Egypt, including the construction of a new grand museum in Cairo.
