Egyptian pharaoh Tut’s artifact display in Paris sees record visitor numbers

Tutankhamun display in Paris sees record visitor numbers: Over 1.3 mn people have so far visited the temporary display of Tutankhamun’s artifacts at the Grande Halle de la Villette in Paris, reaching a record turnout for French cultural exhibitions, reports Egypt Today. The exhibition was launched last March, and runs through to 22 September after a one-week extension to accommodate the crowd. It’s part of a 10-city tour that will wrap up in 2024, after which the artifacts will settle at the Grand Egyptian Museum near the Pyramids. The story was widely noted in foreign news outlets (Arab News | AFP | Guardian | Europe 1).
