Get a firsthand glimpse into the city of Egypt as it was 3,300 years ago.
Transport yourself back to Ancient Egypt at the Houston Museum of Natural Science’s world premiere exhibition, Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharaohs exhibition. Opened this past November, this world premiere exhibition combines priceless Egyptian artifacts with cutting-edge technology, creating an experience in equal parts educational and exhilarating!
As one of the most remarkable collections of its kind, Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharaohs is a multi-sensory exhibition that gives you a firsthand look of Ancient Egypt as well as the life and legacy of Ramses the Great.
Presented by World Heritage Exhibitions and Cityneon, the premiere exhibition features 181 priceless artifacts including thousand-year-old Egyptian crafts, golden treasures, one-of-a-kind gems, magnificent royal masks, exquisite amulets, sarcophagi, and much more!
Additionally, you can strap into high-tech cinematic motion chairs for the Ramses & Nefertari: Journey to Osiris immersive VR experience. This enthralling experience will sweep you off on an electrifying journey through sandstorms, temples and tombs (Abu Simbel and Neferati, respectively), to a one-on-one encounter with Ramses’ mummy.
In addition, you will be able to experience the groundbreaking 1881 discovery of Ramses’ hidden tomb, which was thought to have been lost forever.
Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharaohs will be available to the public at the Houston Museum of Natural Science until May 23, 2022. Get your tickets now before it embarks on a worldwide tour!
