The California Science Center and the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities are featuring a King Tut exhibition, in which visitors will be able to view more than 150 artifacts from King Tut’s Tomb starting from March 24, 2018 and ending on January 6, 2019 in the California Science Center, according to prnewswire.com.

Multiple artifacts such as golden jewelry, sculptures, and ritual objects have been shipped from Cairo, Egypt to the United States for the world premiere of the King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh exhibit, according to artnet.com.

The artifacts date back to the 18th dynasty, according to kingtutexhibition.com.

King Tutankhamun was the 12th pharaoh of the 18th Egyptian dynasty. His reign lasted from 1332 to 1323 B.C.E. At age 19, he died and disappeared in history until his tomb was found in 1922, according to biography.com.

The artifacts were under immense security all the way from Egypt to the United States, due to the fact that they are priceless. When on display, the artifacts will remain with the Egyptian Courier for security reasons, according to inparkmagazine.com.

All the artifacts are authentic, and are items that might have served the king in his lifetime and/or the afterlife, according to californiasciencecenter.org.

“Each object is unique, and the show is a monumental achievement for the preservation of ancient Egyptian history and King Tutankhamun’s place in it,” stated  archaeologist Zahi Hawass.

People wanting to view the exhibit can visit the California Science Center in Los Angeles. Visitors must buy a ticket to be able to get inside the exhibit. Once inside, people can self- navigate through or pay an additional $6 for an audio guide.

Once the exhibit is finished in Los Angeles, it will make a few more visits to other markets around the world and will finally go on display at the new Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo, Egypt, according to kingtutexhibition.com.
