Are you bored? Wondering what to do this summer with the kids? How about a fun, interesting and exciting learning experience? From June 1st - September 30th of 2011, The Irving Arts Center will be hosting the Genghis Khan Exhibit!
The multi-media exhibition features the largest collection of artifacts from the great conqueror's reign ever gathered in a single showing. The story of Genghis Khan the conqueror, the myth and the man is told through a stunning and highly interactive world-tour exhibition. Genghis Khan: The Exhibition follows the life of a poor, illiterate child as he becomes one of the world’s greatest conquerors and leaves a lasting imprint on modern-day culture. 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.
They also have lots of events throughout the time the exhibit is going on. Some examples include:
