If you are in Cape Town I can highly recommend taking the kids to see the International Tutankhamun Exhibition. The TUTANKHAMUN – HIS TOMB AND HIS TREASURES exhibition is in its final weeks at GrandWest in South Africa and must close on 27 September 2015, as it is moving on to New York.
Don’t miss this last opportunity to experience the spectacular golden treasures of the famous boy king’s tomb before it leaves South Africa for good.
Exhibition-goers are guided through their exploration journey with the help of an audio guide (included in the ticket price) that makes the fascinating experience more enjoyable and fulfilling. There is even a special children’s audio guide which has proven to be a huge hit with the kids – my daughter was especially fascinated and where I thought she may be bored, she was otherwise enthralled.
Open seven days a week, the exhibition also has extended hours on weekends from 09h00 – 21h00 (last admission 90 minutes prior to closing). Ticket prices range from R80 to R160 per person and there is a special discounted family package of four tickets. Children of five years and younger are admitted free of charge.
It takes about two hours to walk through the exhibition, although many visitors stay for longer. There’s a shop carrying official programmes, mementos made in Egypt and other quality merchandise. The fascinating “King Tut expo” at GrandWest is an educational and entertaining outing, so book now before it’s too late. To book, visit www.webtickets.co.za.
