In a statement on Friday 21/06/2019, Tayeb Abbas, the director of the archaeological affairs at the GEM, said the chariot of King Tutankhamun is the last ancient piece to be moved to the museum, as part of the joint Egyptian-Japanese project to transfer 72 artifacts.
The GEM will exhibit the full Tutankhamun collection with many pieces to be displayed for the first time.
The museum, due to open next year, will contain over 100,000 artifacts, reflecting Egypt's past from prehistory through to the Greek and Roman periods.
