After 2,000 years of beige, the Met Museums new “Color the Temple'' exhibition has returned color to The Temple of Dendur thanks to new projection-mapping technology.

A new projector has been installed which fills in the temple's carvings with color offering visitors a glimpse of how vibrant the temple would have been in it's original form.

The exhibition is only open on Fridays and Saturday's from 5-9pm and will be open to the public until the 19th of March.
