500,000 visitors to Tutankhamun at the Field

The last report I posteed about ticket sales in Chicago announced that they had just past 400,000 visitors at the end of June. This very brief report announces that another 100,000 visitors have been to the exhibition since then: "The Field Museum has sold a half million tickets to its King Tut exhibit. And the high response has prompted the Chicago museum to extend the hours for people to view Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs on several days in August and September. The Field says the Tut exhibit has drawn groups from 41 different states, and some visitors viewing the exhibit hail from as far away as Alaska and Brazil."
