The Funerary Mask is at its home at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and will eventually go on view with the entire Tutankhamun collection at the forthcoming Grand Egyptian Museum. It is a very popular object that traveled in the 1970s and many people have fond memories of it. Because it is such an iconic world treasure, the Egyptian government has decided it will never travel again so that it can remain for posterity.
