The ‘Ramses and the Gold of the Pharaohs‘ exhibition at the Australian Museum in Sydney was open to the public on November 18.
Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities Secretary General Mostafa Waziry said that the exhibition has witnessed a huge turnout of visitors.
He said that on the first day, 110,000 tickets were sold out.
The exhibition displays the sarcophagus of King Ramses II in addition to 181 artefacts and ornate golden treasures, including one-of-a-kind relics such as sarcophagi, animal mummies, magnificent jewellery, spectacular royal masks, exquisite amulets – many of which have never left Egypt before.
The exhibition, which runs until May 19, 2024, is on its fourth stop after showing in Houston and San Francisco in the US and Paris.
