“Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience,” a new exhibition created in partnership with the National Geographic Society and produced by Paquin Entertainment Group, invites visitors to leave the modern world behind and experience an ancient time. By harnessing projection mapping and new technologies to create visual environments, Ancient Egypt will be brought to life in Jacksonville in an exhibition that opens at the NoCo Center for a limited run beginning June 9.  

Commemorating the historic discovery of King Tut’s tomb 100 years ago, the experience brings the National Geographic archives to life through an informative exhibition. The power of technology, combined with cinematic storytelling and imagery, whisks visitors on an immersive journey exploring the mysterious golden boy-king’s life that ventures beyond the mask. 

“Beyond King Tut” goes beyond a traditional artifact display to fascinate guests – while ensuring that the artifacts from King Tut’s tomb remain in their country of origin.

The multi-gallery, multi-sensory exhibition is a time-traveling adventure designed to make guests feel as if they are in Ancient Egypt. With nine galleries to explore, “Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience” takes visitors on an epic journey through King Tut’s life – his rule as a child pharaoh, his family, the discovery of his tomb, the mysteries surrounding his early death and his journey to the afterlife.
