If you're a fan of world history, or just want to take advantage of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see something super-cool, up-close-and-personal, you'll want to make some plans to head to southern New England this summer!

According to an article in the Boston Herald, the one-and-only, King Tut, will be making his way to Boston. The “King Tut: Treasure of the Golden Pharaoh” will open on June 13th at The Saunders Castle at Park Plaza."

The exhibit will feature over a hundred original artifacts, many of which have never been out of Egypt until this tour. Boston will be the only stop in the North East for the exhibit, so you'll definitely want to take advantage of this opportunity, unless you want to travel further away. Sources say once the exhibit returns to Egypt, it will be there on permanently (meaning this is likely the last time these things will be available to view as it's not likely they'll leave their home country again!)

Organizers are expecting the Limited exhibit will sell out frequently and are pointing people to the exhibit's website kingtutexhibition.com for more information.

Tickets go on sale in March.
