Immersive King Tut experience coming to Scottsdale in September
PHOENIX — Immersive King Tut: Magic Journey to the Light is coming to a Scottsdale art exhibition hall this fall.
The exhibition is set to open Sept. 30 at Lighthouse ArtSpace off Scottsdale Road and Drinkwater Boulevard.
“The ground-breaking immersive King Tut experience takes you on a mythical journey through the Egyptian afterlife,” the website says.
“As Pharaoh, Tutankhamun is the sun of his nation. In this immersive experience, you will follow him on his journey through the underworld.”
The experience will use stunning visuals to tell the story of the Amduat, an Egyptian funerary text, thought to be the oldest known illustrated story, according to a press release.
Tutankhamun was an Egyptian pharaoh that ruled at nine years old. His reign spurred the creation of important Egyptian art.
The exhibit will commemorate the 100th anniversary of archeologist Howard Carter’s discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb in November 1922.
The company Lighthouse Immersive has also brought experiences such as Immersive Van Gogh, Immersive Klimt, Immersive Frida Kahlo and Immersive Monet and The Impressionists.
Tickets start at $29.99 and can be purchased on the website.
