2022 marks the 100th anniversary of one of the greatest archaeological finds in the world’s history, and thanks to a new exhibit developed by the National Geographic Society, Boston is traveling back in time this summer for Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience.

As a kid, I was always fascinated by Egypt’s history. The pyramids, mummification, and elaborate fashion were so intriguing. I’m not ashamed to admit I made my own pyramid for a class project and kept it long after the project was over.

So, it’s no surprise that my ears perked up at the first announcement of a brand-new exhibit coming to Boston that would bring the history books to life.

According to Businesswire, Beyond King Tut will take visitors on “a time-traveling journey flooded with sight, sound and intrigue through the world of King Tut - the boy who reigned as Pharaoh of Egypt more than 3,000 years ago - and the discovery of his tomb and treasures in 1922.”

Most recently, the Beyond Van Gogh exhibit by Paquin Entertainment Group has been entertaining guests at The Strand Theatre in Boston. That same group is on board to transform the SoWa Power Station in Boston into a 4-D experience, transporting guests to a time when an 8-year-old boy took the throne for the first time.

While the rest of the world waits, Beyond King Tut will run in Boston July 8 to Sept. 18. A waitlist is already up and running.

On the official website, details are sparse, but one thing is clear: If you want to travel back in time, get your name on the waitlist.
