Take a trip back in time 3,300 years, traversing the Sahara Desert until you reach the heart of Ancient Egypt, which was governed by the most notable pharaoh in the nation’s fabled history. Witness one of the most remarkable collections of its kind at the Australian Museum, Ramses & the Gold of the Pharaohs. The event opens in Sydney on November 18th and runs until May 19th, with Ticketmaster offering tickets ranging from $25 to $45.
This brand-new, multi-sensory museum experience offers a glimpse into the life and accomplishments of Ramses II, also known as Ramses the Great, who ruled Egypt for an unprecedented 67 years – the second-longest reign of any pharaoh – and lived to the ripe old age of 92. Exclusive to Sydney, Ramses & the Gold of the Pharaohs showcases 181 priceless artifacts, including Egyptian treasures and unique relics.
Many of these items represent the exceptional pharaoh himself and have never departed Egypt before. During this immersive expedition, visitors will marvel at a meticulously preserved collection of artifacts such as sarcophagi, animal mummies, exquisite jewelry, magnificent royal masks, ornate amulets, and intricate golden tomb treasures, which highlight the exceptional artistry of Egyptian craftsmen.
The exhibition also presents a virtual reality experience that takes you on a breathtaking tour of two of Ramses’ most impressive monuments: the Abu Simbel temples and the Tomb of Queen Nefertari, the beloved royal consort of Pharaoh Ramses II. In motion chairs that simulate cinematic motion, viewers will soar through temples, sandstorms, and even come face-to-face with Ramses’ mummy, making this an electrifying and animated journey.
So, If you’re an ancient Egyptian enthusiast residing in Sydney Australia, this is an exhibition that you simply won’t want to miss out on.
