Ramses and the Gold of the Pharaohs: the leading spring exhibition in Paris

Categories : Exhibitions and Museums, published on : 5/1/23

The exhibition spaces of La Villette cultural park were previously imbued with the mystery and allure of ancient Egypt in 2022, during the exhibition dedicated to Tutankhamun. This year, the pharaonic period of that ancient Nile Valley civilisation are once again on the agenda with the exceptional Ramses and the Gold of the Pharaohs exhibition. Take advantage of your stay at the Chess Hotel to discover this display of unique pieces that rarely leave Egypt.


An extraordinary exhibition

Ramses and the Gold of the Pharaohs is exceptional in many ways. Firstly, there is the richness and diversity of the exhibits. Some 180 objects and documents, jewellery, death masks, sarcophagi, animal mummies, statues, and other exquisite treasures from the necropolis of Thebes are presented. Then, and above all, there is the coffin of Ramses II, on loan from the Egyptian government for the first time in 45 years. It all adds up to a vivid and evocative portrayal of the magnificence of a civilization that reaches more than 3,000 years into the dim mists of antiquity.


The magic of virtual reality

The use of new technologies is one of the hallmarks of this exhibition. During your visit, you will be able to take a virtual reality trip to ancient Egypt and enter the temple of Abu Simbel and the tomb of Queen Nefertari. Experience an immersion in the mysterious past and learn about the ancient Egyptian fascination with gold. If you prefer, you can opt for a guided tour. Children are invited to participate in the various workshops on the theme of ancient Egypt.


Tutankhamun was a huge success and the exhibition Ramses and the Gold of the Pharaohs is sure to enjoy a similar level of popularity. Book your tickets as soon as possible. The Chess Hotel team will tell you how to get there quickly and easily.
