Tickets on sale now for King Tut exhibit in Seattle

If you weren’t one of the 1.3 million people who filed past King Tutankhamun’s precious possessions last time they were in town (or even if you were), you’ll get another chance to see some of Egypt’s most intriguing treasures: “Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs” will open at Seattle’s Pacific Science Center on May 24. Details on tickets here. The Seattle stop is the last one in the U.S. for this exhibition, which includes more than 100 artifacts from the tomb of King Tut and from ancient sites representing 2,000 years of Egyptian history.
