King Tut's tomb reopens after 9 years of restoration work

Feb 02, 2019 16:30 IST

Tutankhamun or King Tut's tomb in Egypt is reopening for visitors after 9 years of restoration work. With over thousands of visitors each day, the tomb was wearing away. Getty Conservation Institute partnered with Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities to undertake the restoration work. The tomb still houses some of the original objects that were found in 1922, including Tutankhamun’s mummy. After the painstaking restoration work, the intricate paintings on the wall have been restored to their pristine form. Advanced air filtration systems have been put in place to prevent damage caused by dust.
