$36 m returns of Tut's tour of four American states
"Dr. Zahi Hawas, Secretary General of the Supreme Council for Antiquities said that Egypt would harvest $ 36 million from the tour of Tutankhamun's exhibition in four American States. He said that the golden pharaoh managed to fascinate the American people again 26 years after the first exhibition. This came in a symposium titled "Tutankhamen invaded America" organized by Mubarak's Public Library in Giza. He said that the number of the exhibition visitors in Los Angles reached 10,000 a day while the price of a ticket jumped to $30 in the weekend".
