One of Egypt's famed King Tutankhamun's golden sarcophagi is displayed at his tomb in a glass case in the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, Egypt, April 1, 2016. Artifacts from King Tut's tomb will be on display at the California Science Center in LA for 10 months (Amr Nabil/AP).
Artifacts from King Tut's tomb are going on tour next year to mark the upcoming 100th anniversary of the discovery of the Egyptian pharaoh's resting place.
The California Science Center says the exhibit, "KING TUT: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh," will be on view at the Los Angeles museum for 10 months before heading to Europe in January 2019 as part of a 10-city international tour.

In this Thursday Nov. 5, 2015 file photo, tourists look at the tomb of King Tut as it is displayed in a glass case at the Valley of the Kings in Luxor (Amr Nabil/AP).

Dr. Diane Perlov, Deputy Director for Exhibits at the California Science Center, told KPCC the exhibit will be "more of an immersive-type experience" as each artifact is paired with multimedia to tell the story of Tutankhamun's afterlife.

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 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. More + AUDIO

Secrets inside the Sphinx:
Proof of Internal Chambers

Proof! There are shafts and chambers inside the great Sphinx of Giza near Cairo ("Mars"), Egypt, accessible via an opening at the top of the Sphinx's head.
This video presents evidence from a Harvard University professor of archaeology who describes the interior of the Sphinx's chambers, including the tomb of the first Pharaoh Menes. Could this also be the location of the legendary Hall of Records spoken of by America's "Sleeping Prophet" Edgar Cayce? (Images were taken from Google Images for educational purposes only).
