MH de Young Museum
in Golden Gate Park
— "King Tut" Special Exhibit
June 2009-March 2010

"King Tut" Special Exhibit
- Most Weekends Sold Out
- June 27, 2009 - March 28, 2010

"Tutankhamun and the Golden Age
of the Pharaohs"

"Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs" features over 130 artifacts — ranging from small jewels to a whole sarcophagus — from the tomb of Tutankhamun, his royal predecessors, his family, and court officials.



The historic exhibition includes 50 pieces from King Tut's tomb (originally exhibited around the world in 1979) plus an additional 80 objects from the tombs of his ancestors.

Even if you attended the previous "King Tut" exhibit back in 1979, there's so many more amazing objects to see this time around. Audio tours are highly recommended — you get a lot of detailed and historical information. This exhibit is spectacular — be prepared for crowds!
