TORONTO — Get ready for a new round of “Tut mania.”

The Art Gallery of Ontario is giving its members a first crack at tickets to its King Tut exhibit today.

Non-members can also reserve tickets early to “King Tut: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs” by pre-registering online at www.ago.net/tut until Sept. 17.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Sept. 22.

The exhibit will run at the AGO Nov. 24 through April 18, 2010, with over 100 pieces from Tut’s tomb and other sites.

The last time a King Tut collection came to Toronto in 1979, it drew a record 750,000 visitors to the AGO and inspired “Tut mania” headlines.

The AGO says the exhibit will be “time ticketed, ensuring shorter wait times and greater convenience for visitors.”

Member ticket prices range from $14.50 to $20.

General public ticket prices are from $16.50 to $32.50. There are also family and group rates.

Children aged five and under will get in for free.
