Tutankhamun still selling well

A four-month King Tut exhibit at the Children’s Museum has had thousands of ticket orders today.

In the first few hours after the museum opened ticket sales, the museum has sold more than 19,000 tickets, said Jaclyn Falkenstein, public relations coordinator for the museum.

One year ago, the museum announced the “Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs” exhibit, would come to Indianapolis. The exhibit of more than 130 artifacts from the great tomb in Egypt will open on June 27, along with a new permanent exhibit on modern Egypt. The exhibit ends Oct. 25.

The National Geographic exhibition recently set attendance records in Atlanta, the first stop on a U.S. tour that also includes Dallas and San Francisco.
