It’s good to be the king. 👑
National Geographic’s traveling exhibition — “Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience” — makes its grand, gold-drenched debut at the Wyland Center at the Del Mar Fairgrounds today, where it’ll be on view through Sunday, May 7.
The buzzy, one-hour experience takes visitors on a self-guided adventure to ancient Egypt, focused on the captivating history of King Tut — and the discovery of his tomb 100 years ago. ⚰
Multimedia rules this exhibition. Through massive, colorful screen projections and nine multi-sensory galleries, visitors learn the 3,300-year-old story of the iconic “boy-king,” Tutankhamun. ⚰️
Tickets are now available starting at $21.99 for kids ages 5-15 and $37.50 for adults.
🎟️ Pro tips: Upgrade to a VIP ticket, and you also get access to “Enter the Tomb,” a virtual reality experience that gives you an in-depth look inside King Tut’s tomb — as in, you’re literally “soaring” above it, getting a bird’s eye view.
