More than 3,000 years in the making, discover over 180 ancient Egyptian treasures.

Now open at the Australian Museum!

Transport yourself back 3,300 years, across the sands of the Sahara Desert where you reach the heartbeat of Ancient Egypt, ruled by the most celebrated pharaoh in the country's storied history. Experience one of the greatest collections of its kind in this Australian-first exhibition, Ramses & the Gold of the Pharaohs.

This all-new multisensory museum experience provides visitors with a window into the life and accomplishments of Ramses II, more commonly known as Ramses the Great, who ruled Egypt for 67 years – the second longest reign ever recorded for a pharaoh. Exclusive to Sydney, Ramses & the Gold of the Pharaohs features 181 priceless artefacts including Egyptian treasures and one-of-a-kind relics, many representing the exceptional pharaoh himself and many of which have never left Egypt before.

The exhibition also features a virtual reality experience that takes you on a whirlwind tour of two of Ramses' most impressive monuments: the temples of Abu Simbel and the Tomb of Queen Nefertari, the favourite Royal Consort of Pharaoh Ramses II. In cinematic motion chairs, viewers will fly through temples, sandstorms, and even come face-to-face with Ramses' mummy in this electrifying animated journey.

This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is both educational and exhilarating.
