The “Treasures of Pharaoh” exhibition, which includes Tutankhamun’s treasures and artefacts from his tomb, will open in Paris on 21 March at the Grande Halle de la Villette.

However, this time there are 50 extra artefacts that had never left Egypt prior to the beginning of this tour.

The exhibition opened in Los Angeles earlier.

The worldwide tour will last until 2022.

In 1967 almost 1.5 million visitors attended the exhibition in Paris, according to former antiquities minister Zahi Hawass.

According to the exhibition website, some 130,000 tickets have been sold so far.
