Tutankhamun collection to move from Egyptian Museum to Grand Egyptian Museum by year-end

By the end of this year, the Tutankhamun collection is set to be moved from Tahrir’s Egyptian Museum to its new permanent home at the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) overlooking the Giza Plateau, said Antiquities Minister Khaled El Enany, according to Ahram Online. The collection had been housed in Tahrir for over 84 years. Supervisor-general of the GEM Tarek Tawfik told Ahram Online that the collection “will be transported after the carrying out of preliminary restoration of some artefacts.” Let’s just hope none of them meet the same, unfortunate fate as Tut’s mask.
