Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharaohs - San Francisco DeYoung Museum

Over 3,000 years in the making. Discover 181 priceless ancient Egyptian treasures. Ramses II, known as Ramses the Great, was the most celebrated and powerful pharaoh of the New Kingdom—Egypt’s golden age. Believed to be a god on Earth, he ruled for 67 years as part of the 19th Dynasty, erecting enormous temples, obelisks, and statues and expanding Egypt’s empire. This state-of-the-art exhibition features the greatest collection of Ramses II objects and Egyptian jewelry ever to travel to the United States. Along with the pharaoh's colossal royal sculpture, the exhibition highlights recently discovered animal mummies and treasures from the royal tombs of Dahshur and Tanis. Visitors can walk among towering statues and immerse themselves in multimedia productions that re-create moments from Ramses’s life, including his triumph at Kadesh, the largest chariot battle ever fought.
