Coming to the California Science Center March 24th King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh exhibit is bringing the ancient pharaoh back from the dead. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb this exhibit is the most extensive exhibit yet.
Featuring over 150 authentic artifacts from the King’s tomb this is the last time this exhibit will be in LA. After it hits LA the exhibit will go to ten different cities before leaving to Europe and finally staying in its permanent place at the The Grand Egyptian Museum, located near the Pyramids of Giza.
Many of the artifacts the exhibit brings have never been seen before outside of Egypt and are now going to be on display. These artifacts may have been actually been used by King Tut himself such as rings found on the King’s fingers, golden jewelry, many sculptures he had, and the gold sandals he wore before being buried. Not only that but all of the artifacts in the exhibit are over 3,300 years old and give an inside look at how the King lived.
The exhibit will be here until January 6th and open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., tickets will be available soon and are available for pre-order online at the California Science Center website.
