The National Geographic Museum in DC is bringing visitors into a whole new virtual reality where they will be able to delve into the tomb of King Tutankhamun and see its iconic treasures like never before. ‘Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience’ is an immersive VR experience, and it’s going public to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the most famous archeological discovery of all time - when archeologist Howard Carter first opened King Tut’s tomb in 1922 and uncover the Pharaoh alongside his most prized possessions.


The all-encompassing theatrical experience will bring the archives of the National Geographic society to life using projection mapping, inviting visitors to explore everything Egyptology through a series of floor-to-ceiling projections. All attendees will be taken along on an archeological ride, time-traveling 3,000 years back in time to discover the young king’s short-lived reign from 1332 BCE to 1323 BCE.
