Went to the King Tut Exhibit before the Los Angles Football Club soccer game. Great display with very interesting relics. Very educational experience. The Science Center is a great place to take some time out and soak in some knowledge.

It's inside in a special tent put up for the purpose of displaying it accessible from the science building. The plan is to build a permanent place to house it. ASK most anyone, you may need a timed entry ticket.
