The National Library of Romania is hosting the famous exhibition Treasures of Ancient Egypt, which displays ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s mask. Visitors can also see a fragment of an authentic sarcophagus, jewels, papyrus sheets or amulets that accompanied the dead in the afterlife.
For the first time in Romania, the Treasures of Ancient Egypt promise a fascinating incursion for both ancient culture and civilization enthusiasts and those who, out of pure curiosity, want to enrich their general culture.
The 300 artefacts (original copies and songs), selected from several private collections and presented as a show, recreate within the six thematic sections of the exhibition – Everyday Life, Dynasties, Gods and Religions, Tutankhamun, Death and Mummification, Water transport, War and Construction – the atmosphere and emotions of thousands of years ago, giving visitors the chance of a real escapade in the enigmatic past of the Egyptians.
Over 50 specialists who worked on installation and organization have made every effort to make every visitor find interesting things here. The exhibition summarizes The 5000 Years of History and Civilization, which inspired scientists, artists, writers and film directors, thanks to majestic architecture, mysterious religious rites, luxury jewelery, and for grandiose scientific achievements.
Egyptians were some of the first makers of luxury jewelry, calligraphic and plastic art, fashion clothing of the times, and even makeup techniques.
More than one million people in Europe and Latin America visited this exhibition.
The exhibition will be on until June 21, being open to visitors between 09:00 and 18:00 on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 09:00 to 20:00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, between 09:00 and 19:00 on Fridays, and between 10:00 and 19:00 on Saturdays and Sundays.
