DMA sets record with King Tut

Posted on 15 Jun 2009 at 3:23pm

I was one of the 47,000 late-comers who kept putting off seeing the Kig Tut exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art until the last weekend (after all, it was only there for nine months), but my attendance helped the DMA set a few records. Overall, 664,000 ticketholders walked by the exhibition, and more than 1 million visitors visited the museum during its fiscal year — also a record.

Some people disparaged the exhibit as “not art,” and they had some good points, but I still enjoyed it… and am happy the DMA set some records in the course of it.
