    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.

    Just watch for zombies, flesh eating beetles of the non-Ringo Starr type, and the curse of King Tut and you'll be good.

    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.

    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.

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