Since opening in June 2005, Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs has drawn nearly four million visitors.

On display are fifty of Tutankhamun's burial objects, including his royal diadem, the gold crown discovered encircling the head of his mummified body that he likely wore as king and one of the gold and precious stone inlaid canopic coffinettes that contained his mummified internal organs. More than seventy additional objects from tombs of 18th Dynasty royals, as well as several non-royal individuals, are also exhibited.
