National Museum in Prague extends “King of the Sun” exhibition through September

The “Kings of the Sun” exhibition, part of an international project documenting the greatest archaeological discoveries of Czech Egyptologists connected with the research of the Egyptian Abusir, will remain at the National Museum through September.

The exhibition was originally due to end this February, but due to anti-coronavirus measures, the museum had to close for months, and far fewer people had a chance to see it.

“Kings of the Sun” features hundreds of ancient Egyptian artefacts that had never before left Cairo along with treasures from the 3rd to the 1st millennium BC unearthed by Czech archaeologists over the past 100 years.

Among the artefacts are many on loan from the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, the Great Egyptian Museum in Giza, and a number of German museums.
