DFW Fun at Irving Arts Center

Exhibit runs June 1 to Sept. 30, 2011

"The story of Genghis Khan the conqueror, the myth and the man is told through a stunning and highly interactive world-tour exhibition. Genghis Khan: The Exhibition follows the life of a poor, illiterate child as he becomes one of the world’s greatest conquerors and leaves a lasting imprint on modern-day culture. More than 200 artifacts including gold jewelry, weaponry, silk robes, currency, tomb treasures and more are displayed alongside video-screens, hands-on activity stations and role-playing kiosks to create an educational and historical experience for visitors of all ages."

Genghis Khan: The Exhibition
Genghis Khan: The Exhibition features the largest collection of 13th century Mongolian artifacts ever assembled in a single showing.

The exhibition features the recently uncovered mummy and tomb treasures of a Mongolian noble woman, nicknamed The Princess Giant because of her unusual height.

The opening of Genghis Khan: The Exhibition marks the first time an exhibition of this scale has been on view at the Irving Arts Center and in the city of Irving.

Genghis Khan: The Exhibition was produced by “Dino” Don Lessem, with curatorial consultation by leading Genghis Khan scholars Dr. William Fitzhugh of the Smithsonian Institution and Dr. Morris Rossabi of Columbia University. Lessem is an author, long-time science journalist and president of Exhibits Rex, Inc. More than 10 museums and private collections are represented including the National Museum of Mongolian History, the National Library of Mongolian and the Military Museum of Mongolia.
