Experience ancient Egypt like never before, right here in Chicago! Follow King Tut’s Journey at the Immersive King Tut experience.
King Tutankhamun, more commonly known as King Tut, was a famous Egyptian ruler. Known as also the “Boy King”, King tut began ruling at just age nine. Many say he was born into the role considering his name means “living image of Aten”; Aten being the God of the Sun. King Tut was born to possess power. Although he died at age 19, and only ruled for a decade, King Tutankhamun’s legacy continues around the world, and in the city of Chicago
After his passing, King Tut became Pharaoh, or a god to the Egyptians. During his rule, King Tutankhamun implemented many corrections to fight the backlash of the previous King. Under his rule, he was said to have been influential, progressive and a staple in Egyptian history.
