    I will be attending the Tutankhamun & Golden Age of Pharaohs - King Tut exhibit while it is showing at the Dallas Museum of Art. I was concerned about carrying and being stopped at the door. I would have hated to drive the distance and pay the money only to be turned away. I know they are highly concerned about cameras and electronics. So I was interested in whether or not they had metal detectors, bag searches, wands... So I wrote them an e-mail to inquire if I would be allowed to carry concealed inside the exhibit. This is a portion of what I just received from their public relations department.

    "No, you will not be refused entrance to the Museum or the King Tut
    exhibition as a licensed carrier of a firearm."

    I was a little shocked, and at the same time, estatic. I actually did not think they would allow CC in the museum.

    Just thought I would let you know this in case anyone is going to the museum.

    That's a refreshing reply from what most people seem to normally get in response to such questions.

    I'm not surprised since there's no prohibition by law and they don't really have a reason to (but then again, most 30.06 posted placed don't either). What is surprising is that they'd put it in writing in the response. That's a good sign.

    Guess they have different policies.When they were here I could not carry my weapon as the musuem in my town had the no weapons allowed sticker posted.

    30.06 posted or just something like the little red circle no gun signs? If the later, you're not prohibited from carrying legally.
