Final tickets at Tutankhamun at Fort Lauderdale

"It all ended quietly, well before the witching hour. One lone person, in the last gallery of the museum, poring over the scientific analysis done on King Tut's mummified remains, which included a reproduction of the boy king's skull. The last visitor then wandered out past the gift shop, and left the museum, just before 11:30 p.m. on Sunday.
After four months of hoopla, Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs ended its run at the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale.
The exhibit chaalked up 707,534 visitors, according to museum officials. Thanks in part to a Tut marathon viewing -- which began Saturday at 8 a.m., with the last person being let in just before 10 p.m. Sunday night, some 30,000 more tickets had been sold during the last four days."
