Hot on the heels of the spectacular Pharaoh’s Golden Parade as well as the inspired Art D’Egypte #ForeverisNow exhibit at the Pyramids, and on the eve of the hotly anticipated celebration of the newly restored Sphinx Avenue in Luxor, Egypt’s ancient heritage continues to vie for the world’s attention with launch of the ‘Ramses and the Pharaohs’ Gold’ exhibition which just kicked off its world tour at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.

Showcasing a total of 181 artefacts, the sparkling collection takes visitors through the mesmerizing history of Egypt’s gold highlighting some of the most distinguishable characteristics of ancient Egyptian visual culture from the middle to late eras including from statues, ornaments, cosmetics, jewelry to striking stone blocks inscribed with stories of our ancestors and vividly colored wooden coffins.

The soft opening of ‘Ramses and the Pharaohs’ Gold’ took place over the last few days with an impressive turn out of global art aficionados and collectors treated to a sneak peek of the extraordinary exhibit.

After finishing its six month run in Houston, the exhibit will then move on to San Francisco’s De Young Museum for another six months, followed by the Castle Hall in Massachusetts. It will then cross the Atlantic, landing in Paris and then London before ending its stellar tour in Sydney in January 2025.
