Come face-to-face with the most celebrated ruler of ancient Egypt.
The wait is over, Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharaohs exhibition has finally arrived at the Houston Museum of Natural Science! This world premiere exhibition pairs cutting-edge technology with priceless Egyptian artifacts, creating a thrilling exhibition that’s as educational as it is exhilarating!
Opened this past November at the HMNS, Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharaoahs is one of the most remarkable collections of its kind. This multi-sensory exhibition will take you back 3,300 years, where you can get a firsthand look of Ancient Egypt as well as a window into the life and legacy of Ramses the Great.
Over the course of this journey, you will encounter 181 priceless artifacts, one-of-a-kind gems, magnificent royal masks, exquisite amulets, sarcophagi, and more thousand-year-old golden treasures expertly crafted by the ancient Egyptian artists.
Furthermore, you will be able to re-live the groundbreaking 1881 discovery of Ramses’ hidden tomb – thought to have been lost forever.
Presented by World Heritage Exhibitions and Cityneon, the enthralling exhibition also features the Ramses & Nefertari: Journey to Osiris immersive VR experience. Here, visitors will strap into cinematic motion chairs, before sweeping off on an electrifying excursion through sandstorms, temples and tombs (Abu Simbel and Neferati, respectively), as well as an up-close and personal encounter with Ramses’ mummy.
Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharaohs is now open to the public at the Houston Museum of Natural Science until May 23, 2022, before it embarks on a global tour.
Tickets for the exhibition are priced at $35 for adults, $27 for children. Member tickets, both adults and children, are available for $20. The VR experience is available for visitors at an additional cost of $22 for the public and $18 for members – those prices equal for adults and children.
