King Tut, here we come!

Our family has tickets to go see the King Tut exhibit at the Pacific Science Center this summer and everyone but our two-year-old is super excited. In order to help prepare my seven-year-old for this experience, I purchased a copy of “Who Was King Tut?” by Roberta Edwards. Unfortunately, this title is not available through the Sno-Isle library system, but you can find it on Amazon or at your local bookstore. “Who Was King Tut?” is written at the third grade reading level and includes lots of pictures, illustrated by True Kelley.

On a side-note, I spent way too much time overanalyzing the most affordable ways to purchase our King Tut tickets, and this is what I finally did. Our family went to the Pacific Science Center one day and I purchased an $80 Copper membership package. You can name six people on your membership, so I was able to include our whole family plus two grandmas. Then, while I was at the membership office, I purchased our tickets to go see King Tut later this summer.

Being a Pacific Science Center member gave me a steep discount on the special exhibit prices. Buying the tickets in person saved me money on the Internet transaction fees. Now our family can enjoy going to the Pacific Science Center all year long and all we have to pay for is parking. If anybody has some good ideas about how to save money on that, please share!
