"Kings of the Sun" exhibition

The civilization of ancient Egypt, which has lasted for more than 3,000 years, has long fascinated archaeologists and the public. The National Museum — in cooperation with Charles University’s Czech Institute of Egyptology and Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities — will show a never-before-exhibited collection of approximately 300 objects that are almost 5,000 years old. The exhibition has been in preparation for several years, and the total insured value of the items is 1 billion CZK.

By combining original artifacts and modern multimedia technologies, the Kings of the Sun will let people experience the atmosphere of the great Egyptian rulers. The exhibition is designed for all ages.


The exhibition, in the museum’s Historical Building on Prague’s Wenceslas Square, runs until February 7, 2021.
