 To celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb, the California Science Center is proud to present the world premiere of KING TUT: TREASURES OF THE GOLDEN PHARAOH–the largest King Tut exhibition ever toured! Discover over 150 authentic artifacts from King Tut’s celebrated tomb, many of which the boy king himself used in life and in death, including gold jewelry, gilded wood furniture, and ornate ritual objects–60 of which have never traveled outside of Egypt, until now. Its ornate artifacts and multimedia displays will stimulate interest in the many sciences related to archaeology. Guests will also learn how the scientific analysis of his 3,000 year-old mummy revealed new information about his health and lineage, as well as how cutting-edge archeological tools are assisting in discovering tombs and analyzing existing ones in ways never before imagined. Come experience these priceless treasures before they return to Egypt forever.

MYSTERIES OF EGYPT: Soar over the great pyramids of Giza, rush over the Nile, cross the deathly quiet Valley of the Kings, and descend into the shadowy chambers of the sacred tomb of King Tutankhamen. Mysteries of Egypt stars native Egyptian and legendary actor Omar Sharif.

Bring a lunch to eat in-between the IMAX and the exhibit.
