It’s your last chance to see the King Tut exhibit in the United States.

And it’s almost over.

“Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs” is on display at the Pacific Science Center until Jan. 6, when its artifacts will be shipped back to a permanent home in Egypt.

It features more than 100 relics from King Tut’s tomb and other significant sites that represent more than 2,000 years of ancient Egyptian history.

Tickets are $27.50 for adults 16 to 64, $24.50 for seniors 65 and older and students with ID, $16.50 for kids 6 to 15, and $15.50 for kids 3 to 5.

Tickets are $5 extra Fridays, Saturdays and holidays.

Some discounts are available.

The center will extend opening hours to 9 a.m. daily and closing hours to 10:30 p.m. on weekends from Wednesday to Jan. 6.

For more information, go to www.pacificsciencecenter.org or call 800-664-8775.
