The discovery of King Tut's tomb was one of the greatest archeological finds of the 20th century. And now, an exhibit at the San Diego Natural History Museum allows visitors to become virtual archeologists, viewing an exact recreation of the tomb and its opulent contents.

It's a big show for the Natural History Museum and one that is meant as a showcase during the Balboa Park Centennial celebration.
