In conjunction with the exhibition, Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs, the de Young Museum has partnered with 21 Bay Area hoteliers to create King Tut-inspired packages. The exhibition has attracted nearly five million visitors on its U.S. tour, and the de Young will be the only venue north of Los Angeles and west of Dallas. When Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs opens in San Francisco on June 27, 2009, it will mark the first time that the treasures of King Tut will be seen in Northern California since the exhibition at the de Young in 1979.
With packages including special spa services, dining experiences, exhibition docent tours and other amenities, there are offerings tailored to every guest. Every hotel package also includes exclusive access to unrestricted VIP exhibition tickets, which are not available to the general public. VIP tickets are untimed and undated, enabling visitors to view the exhibition at their discretion, even when it is sold out. As VIP ticketholders, guests will also receive a Pharaohs Gold Card, entitling them to unique discounts and special offers from participating retail partners, restaurants, businesses and attractions all over Northern California.
