Haven't got down to Los Angeles to see King Tut's treasures at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art? Didn't want to spend $25 to $75? Lancaster Museum Art Gallery opens Saturday an Egyptian display of its own with more than a millennium's worth of sculpture, jewelry, cosmetic objects and funerary equipment - and admission is free.

A Middle Kingdom coffin from about 1800 B.C. and wooden sarcophagus masks from 1500 B.C. - both older than Tut's treasures - will be on display, along with mummified falcons, wooden statuettes, bronze figurines, and headrests.

The museum is at 44801 Sierra Highway, Los Angeles, CA
