Art Gallery of Ontario Extends King Tut's Reign

Art Daily

The Art Gallery of Ontario will extend its blockbuster exhibition King Tut: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs for two additional weeks through May 2 due to high demand for tickets. To date, the Gallery has sold over 300,000 tickets to the exhibition, currently making its only Canadian stop at the AGO.

The exhibition is already the Gallery’s most attended in over a decade, and AGO Michael and Sonja Koerner Director, and CEO Matthew Teitelbaum is thrilled with its success. “It continues to be a privilege to host these incredible treasures as they make their final journey around the world,” he says. “The response to this exhibition has been remarkable, and we’re glad to give people one final chance to view these extraordinary wonders.”
