Artifacts from King Tut's tomb are going on tour next year. This is to mark the upcoming 100th anniversary of the discovery of the Egyptian pharaoh's resting place.

The exhibit is called ="KING TUT: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh." It will go on view at the Los Angeles museum in March for 10 months. This is according to the California Science Center. Then it will head to Europe in January 2019 as part of a 10-city international tour.

The museum says the exhibition represents the largest collection of artifacts and gold from Tutankhamun's tomb ever to go on public display outside of Egypt. It says 40 percent of the items are leaving Egypt for the first and last time before going on permanent display. They will be at a new museum being built near the Giza Pyramids in Egypt.

King Tut's tomb was discovered in 1922, more than 3,000 years after his death.

    I think it's awesome that they are taking the artifacts of King Tut's tomb to different places in order for them to be displayed. The artifacts should leave Egypt because a lot of people don't plant trips to go there. This way with the artifacts going on a tour, people get a chance to see them before they return to Egypt for permanent display.
