Egypt's Tourism Minister Rania Al-Mashat announced that King Tutankhamun's belongings will be displayed in a visual spectacle that will have the collection emerge in Holographic 3D Imagery during the Grand Egyptian Museum's anticipated opening within the last quarter of 2020.

“We decided to focus on the quality, not the quantity; we should be present in various conspicuous exhibitions, but unique through distinctive promoting means,” Al-Mashat said to Xtra News, further elaborating that this will be the first time - ever since the tomb was discovered in 1922 - to have all the king's belongings fully exhibited to the public.

While the GEM's General Manager, Tarek Tawfik, previously said that Tutankhamun's collection accommodates two 7,000 square-meters galleries within the museum, giving us insight to the boy king's highly documented life from daily matters like how he lived, dressed and ate.

Egypt recently has been focusing on delivering a state of the art viewing experience through out its international exhibitions from 3D virtual reality scenes depicting a dive in the country's Red Sea to delving into the Luxor Temple and its surroundings. It is expected that the GEM will deliver similar technological feats to its visitors, as the megalithic museum is not being demure by any means regarding its massive display collection. Set to house over 100,000 artifacts from different eras of Egypt's long winding history, the GEM is set to become a new international landmark for Egyptian civilisation.
