INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Tickets to see King Tut are now on sale.
The Children's Museum of Indianapolis is hosting the " King Tut and the Golden Pharaohs" exhibit beginning June 27, running through October. Timed and dated tickets are available now online and at their ticket office.
Monday, a class of 2nd graders from Lowell Elementary received free tickets.
"Of course to have school kids here today was absolutely great and we're so thankful to Lilly Endowment to helping support all of the school kids from the state of Indiana that would like to come and see the exhibit can do so for free," said President Jeff Patchen of The Children's Museum of Indianapolis.
A grant of $2 million from the Lilly Endowment will give tickets to students and teachers on a first come first serve basis.
WISH-TV anchor Debby Knox and Forecast 8's Steve Bray followed folks from the museum to Egypt recently and will be sharing stories and a documentary on the adventure in the weeks ahead.
