If you’d like to get a broader context for the King Tut exhibition, you won’t want to miss this deal I found on Travelzoo: You can get two tickets to the King Tut exhibition & admission to a lecture by Zahi Hawass for $23–that’s over 50% off the regular admission price for the exhibition alone, and it includes free admission to the lecture (regularly priced $8 each).
Zahi Hawass’ name may be unfamiliar to you, but there’s no better resource for the historical context of the antiquities in the King Tut exhibition: Dr. Hawass is the secretary general of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities.
The “Mysteries of Tutankhamun Revealed” lecture will take place on March 19 at 7:00 p.m. at the Atlanta Civic Center. Though you can see both in one day, the two Tut tickets included in the package are untimed & undated tickets, giving you a chance to attend the lecture first and then visit the exhibition.
The Atlanta Civic Center is located at 395 Piedmont Avenue NE, Atlanta.
