Egyptian officials have announced that the mummy of King Tut will be removed from its sarcophagus and displayed to the public in a climate-controlled glass case starting next month in Luxor.

King Tut will be partially rewrapped in new linen, but the face will be left bare when the exhibition begins. Link
