To cel­e­brate the 100th an­niver­sary of the dis­cov­ery of King Tu­tankhamun’s tomb, a new ex­hi­bi­tion will make its world­wide de­but on 24 March, 2018 at the Cal­i­for­nia Sci­ence Cen­ter in Los An­ge­les. King Tut: Trea­sures of the Golden Pharaoh will show­case more than 150 real arte­facts from the tomb, and will be the largest as­sem­bly of arte­facts and gold from the tomb to go on dis­play – ever. Vis­i­tors will be able to see many items used by the Boy King in life and in death, in­clud­ing gold jewellery, sculp­tures, carv­ings and rit­ual an­tiq­ui­ties. Nearly half of these pieces will be leav­ing Egypt for the first and only time, as they will be housed per­ma­nently in the new Grand Egyp­tian Mu­seum, which is due to open this year. The ex­hi­bi­tion will be on dis­play in

Los An­ge­les un­til early Jan­uary 2019, when it will move to Europe. cal­i­for­ni­a­science­cen­ter.org; king­tu­tex­hi­bi­tion.com
