"Tutankhamun collection to be moved to Grand Egyptian Museum by end of 2016" (Ahram Online - Nevine El-Aref, 19.06.2016)

"A documentary on the transportation processes of this distinguished collection will be screened at the GEM during its official inauguration

After almost 84 years, the treasured collection of the golden king Tutankhamun will be moved from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir to its new permanent exhibition hall at the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) overlooking the Giza Plateau.

Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Enany said that by the end of this year, Tutankhamun’s collection will be transported in a gala festival similar to that of the transportation of King Ramses II’s statue from Ramses Square in downtown Cairo to the GEM.

A documentary on the transportation processes of this distinguished collection will be screened at the GEM during its official inauguration.

The first transportation of the collection was from Luxor’s west bank to Tahrir Museum in 1923.

Tarek Tawfik, supervisor-general of the GEM, told Ahram Online that Tutankhamun’s collection will be transported after the carrying out of preliminary restoration of some artefacts in the collection at the Tahrir Museum. Another phase of restoration work will take place at the state-of-the-art GEM laboratories."

Greetings, Lutz.
