We're SO glad we were able to see this before it's gone forever!
Head of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, Zahi Hawass, has announced that he'll be closing Tutankhamun's tomb by the year's end.
Two other tombs will be closing as well, but then again, Steve Martin only made a song about King Tut, so obvi that makes him the most important! LOLz.
Looks like they're closing the tombs because they've become "hotter and more humid," and now "paint is flaking off and mold is growing in some parts."
It's sad that more people won't get to see the original tomb, but it's certainly important for the tombs to be preserved.
Fortunately, they'll be creating an exact replica of Tutankhamun's tomb, so at least people will get to experience what it would have been like to visit Tut's resting place.
Have U been to King Tut's tomb? Will U make it there before it closes forever?
