Thanks to the California Science Center you can immerse yourself in ancient Egyptian culture without traveling 15+ hours by plane!

Now through January 6, 2019, visit KING TUT: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh. The exhibition contains more than 150 authentic artifacts from the young pharaoh’s tomb — the largest collection ever seen outside of Egypt. Among the artifacts are rare items including 3,300 year-old statues, rings found on Tut’s fingers and gold sandals that were on his feet when the tomb was discovered. Advanced display technology also helps tell the tale of the king’s life, death and lineage.

The California Science Center is offering a special discount to visitors who Go Metro to the exhibit! Take the Expo Line to the Expo Park/USC Station, then it’s a short, two-minute walk to the museum. Show your TAP card at the box office and save $3 on adult tickets and $1 on child tickets.

You won’t want to miss the experience. Although King Tut’s possessions have toured L.A. in the past, this is likely to be their final visit. For more routes and connections to the California Science Center, check the Metro Trip Planner.
