Hot news from the Barbarian front, dear DFW readers. You were planning to take your little barbarians to see their barbarian leader, Genghis Kahn, and all his treasures, at the Irving Arts Center? You're in luck. I just found out that Mondays this summer: June 20, July 18, August 15 and September 19 we can go view Genghis Khan: The Exhibition for the special price of just $8 per person. (That's the kid's price!) Says so here.
Genghis Khan and all his worldly possessions are coming to visit the Irving Arts Center in Irving, TX this summer from June 1st to September 30th. And you bet we'll be there, especially on a Monday. The Irving Arts Center is hosting this awe-inspiring once-in-a-lifetime exhibit:
More than 200 artifacts including gold jewelry, weaponry, silk robes, currency, tomb treasures and more are displayed alongside video-screens, hands-on activity stations and role-playing kiosks to create an educational and historical experience for visitors of all ages.I know my little Barbarians will be inspired. Hopefully they will not be inspired to tie up mommy and take over the world. And since it'll only cost me $8 to get in, the Barbarians will get ice cream on the way home.
