It is not every day that a person as famous as Tutankhamun makes a stopover in Paris.

Also known as “King Tut”, this young monarch, who accomplished very few things in his life, owes his fame above all to the determination of the young British Egyptologist Howard Carter, who discovered his almost untouched tomb in 1922. The collections resulting from the splendour of ancient Egypt.
The complete collection from the Pharaoh’s tomb includes nearly 5500 pieces, some of which are monumental, and will soon be presented at the Grand Egyptian Museum, which should open its doors at the foot of the Giza pyramids in 2022.
