Travel Idea: King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh at the California Science Center
Metrolink is your ticket to seeing the sights throughout Southern California, and with our $10 Weekend Day Pass, there is no better deal or way to save money while avoiding traffic and parking. Even if you decide to go on a weekday, Metrolink is still one of the easiest ways to see this once-in-a-lifetime exhibit.
Now through January 6, 2019, the California Science Center is hosting a new exhibit that is 100 years (or 3,300 years depending how you look at it) in the making with King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh.
This exhibit celebrates the 100-year anniversary of the discovery of King Tut’s tomb. While the actual anniversary isn’t until 2022, this exhibition will travel to 10 cities before returning to permanent display at the new Grand Egyptian Museum, currently under construction. Los Angeles is the first stop on the tour, and the only stop in the Americas.
Exhibition guests can follow King Tut as he journeys from death through the underworld to find his place in the afterlife, learning how each burial artifact was used to assist him in his life-after-death journey. This exhibition focuses on Tut’s journey in nine different galleries, showcasing artifacts from his tomb – many of which have never left Egypt before.
This experience is educational for historians of all ages and is sure not to be missed! Tickets are selling fast, so be sure to get yours today from the California Science Center website and see how Metrolink will get you there.
