Featured treasures in the exhibition, which are all between 3,300 and 3,500 years old, include Tutankhamun's royal diadem -- the gold crown discovered encircling the head of the king's mummified body that he likely wore while living -- and one of the gold and precious stone inlaid coffinettes that contained his mummified internal organs.
