This event has ended.

The ancient Egyptians believed that the world was born from the primeval sea, Nun, and that it would be swallowed up again on the final day. Within that enormous cycle, all things are born and will eventually perish….. Such were the grand view of the world in which the role of the pharaoh and the life of the people were positioned. In this exhibition, visitors will be able to see the story of the “creation and end of the world” of the ancient Egyptians through approximately 130 masterpieces from the Ägyptisches Museum und Papyrussammlung (Egyptian Museum and Papyrus Collection) in Berlin, Germany. Enjoy the mysterious world of mythology that continues to captivate us today.
