Visitors to the museum can expect to see sarcophagi, animal mummies, magnificent jewellery, spectacular royal masks, and exquisite amulets, many of which have never left Egypt before and are currently lent to the Australian Museum in Sydney from Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities. This all-new multisensory museum experience will also feature the sarcophagus of Ramses II, which is one of the most impressive royal coffins from ancient Egypt ever to be discovered.

What makes the exhibition a massive event for Egyptology enthusiasts from all over the globe is the virtual reality experience that takes visitors on a whirlwind tour of two of Ramses’ most impressive monuments: the Tomb of Queen Nefertari, his favourite Royal Consort, and the temples of Abu Simbel. Ramses & the Gold of the Pharaohs will give visitors an up-close look into the life, achievements, and stunning monuments of Ramses the Great by combining the tremendous historical experience with today’s technology to form a time window closing all gaps with our ancestors.
