Unlocking Pharaoh’s Cellar
THE EGYPTIAN MUSEUM IN CAIRO
The Egyptian Museum in Cairo exhibits some 120.000 artefacts, including the mummies of legendary pharaohs such as Ramses II and the gold treasure of Tutankhamen. What hardly anyone suspects is that there is an estimated further 90.000 objets d’art stored in the cellar. For the first time our film team has snatched the exclusive opportunity to access these treasures, which have not been seen since their discovery.
