Must we trade brunch dates and Bloody Mary’s for barely edible pancakes and sippy cups once we have kids? Hardly.

For those living in the middle of Missouri, there are only a few options for hitting the "big city" -- St. Louis, Mo., or Memphis, Tenn. Last spring, my gal pal Jessie and I chose to visit Memphis for the first time.

You could visit South Florida without paying homage to the Everglades, but why would you want to? And paying proper homage to the Florida Everglades requires an airboat ride.

According to Kristy Bassuener, Denver Art Museum: “The museum will have several cool Tut-related programs for kids and families to supplement our ongoing programming for families. Our education team develops special programs for kids of all ages, adults and families.”
Here are two of the family friendly programs during King Tut exhibit
Can't get enough of King Tut? Denver Art Museum visitors will have the opportunity to add the 3D film, Egypt 3D: Secrets of the Mummies to their exhibition visit – or any visit. The 30-minute feature follows researchers and explorers as they piece together the archeological and genetic clues of Egyptian mummies. These relics of the past create a window into the fascinating and mysterious world of the pharaohs. In addition to increasing our understanding of the culture, religion, medicine and daily life thousands of years ago, scientists today are reconstructing mummy DNA and deciphering ancient texts to gain insight into modern human genetics and advance medical treatments. ($5 additional at the museum)
Adult and Family Programming Programming surrounding the exhibition will feature family-friendly activities and spaces to engage museum visitors of all ages. In the Just for Fun Egypt Center, located in Duncan Pavilion, kids can try on costumes to become Egyptian royalty, or design an Egyptian collar. Families can enjoy a snack, take in the view from the outdoor patio, relax and play.
Two Create Play dates for kids ages 3 to 5 and their grownups – MEOW in September and SHINE in November – will feature drop-in fun and story time in the gallery with an Egyptian art theme. Create Play dates are free with general admission.
