I am actually going to see the Tut exhibit before it departs for the UK! As long as it is not sold out everything should go well. I just have to actually buy tickets. I am very excited about it and I just had to post here and let everyone know! Very Happy

I want to go to this exhibition too, but it's very far from my place so I can't go. Sad Sad

Why my country doesn't have any exhibitions like these. Sad Sad

If anyone pre-registered, did you get the email? I got an email saying that anyone who got a certificate can pre-book on the 10th September.

The official date for general ticket sales is 12th September.

I can't wait either-there was an article on the Evening Standard and there are adverts all over the Tube as well.

Your going to see the exhibition in Philadelphia, ImageOfAten? I'd really like to hear your impressions of it and the experience you have at the Franklin Institute. As you probably know we had Tut in town at the Field Museum for eight months and it was a colossal success. I'm curious to know how the Franklin Institute does with it.

Have a great time when you're there. You're in for a real treat! Smile

so happy so so so happyyyy!
I got my tickets for the tut exhibit through the presale.
It was SO stressful! I got home from school and my mum and me tried to get some - and the first weekend had already sold out! They've only been out for a day as well. So in the end we had to go all the way down to Dec 15th between 12.00-12.30 for them to be available.
Yaaaay!
Very Happy
So excited!

Thanks! Very Happy
How long do you have in there once you go in? can you stay in for as long as you want or not?

Most venues are not going to force a time limit on visitors. We didn't when the exhibit was at the Field Museum. Once in there, a visitor could've spent eight minutes or eight hours.

Follow the plan of my fellow Moderator, anneke: when she went, she toured the galleries, then backtracked and did it all again. A dandy idea, and it allows you on your second or third time to concentrate your attention on the artifacts that most fascinated you the first time through.

I can't say what other venues will do, but I can't imagine they'd force a time limit on someone and start kicking people out after an hour or so. First off, it would be very difficult to keep track of who's been in the galleries for such and such a time. Second, and more important, that would be an awful policy and would be sure to earn the venue the disdain of visitors.

Thank you Smile

I just checked with your venue and they are allowing twenty-seven seconds for each visitor. Don't worry, they'll be fitting each of you with roller-blades so you can go really fast. Razz

All right, so I made that up.

I brought my parents through the exhibit when it was in Chicago. My dad couldn't care less about such things and went ahead of us to find benches on which to rest and wait, but my mom surprised me. She has some mobility problems and can be unsteady on her feet, but she and I must've spent over two hours in there! She had a great time.

I'm sure our slow progress drove my dad absolutelty nuts. Laughing

The policy at the Millenneum Dome is the same as what Kmt_sesh explained for the Field Museum; once you're in you can stay until it closes regardless of what your entry time is. Very Happy
