The exhibition includes 50 major artifacts excavated from the tomb of King Tut, including his royal diadem (the gold crown discovered on his head), as well as one of the gold and precious stone inlaid coffinettes that contained his mummified internal organs. More than 70 objects from other royal graves of the 18th Dynasty (1555 B.C.-1305 B.C.) are on view as well.
A further highlight is the loaned collection of pieces from the intact tomb of Yuya and Tuyu, the parents-in-law of Amenophis III. This tomb was discovered some 20 years before that of Tutankhamun, and had until then been the most celebrated find in the Valley of the Kings.
The objects are accompanied by photos of Howard Carter taken in 1922 to illustrate the condition of the tomb during the first opening.
