1788 El Prado, Balboa Park
"Totes lame," says 15-year-old Kris Kendall of Serra Mesa of his experience at The Discovery of King Tut, a touring recreation of King Tut's tomb and treasures that is currently on exhibit at the San Diego Natural History Museum.
"'History comes to life,' my ass. Nothing came to life. Nothing even moved. No deadly scarabs, no spirit-demons, hell, not even any cool booby traps. It's just a bunch of crap they buried with a teenager when he died. Like if I cashed in and they just took my bedroom and built a pyramid around it for some reason. And it's not even his real crap, which was at least made of solid gold or some shit. At least that would have been swag. It's just cheap knockoffs, like those fake Louis Vuitton bags they sell on street corners. Apparently, the Curse of the Pharoahs is real: anyone who visits will be bored to death."
The exhibit runs through April 26. Tickets are $27 for adults, and $17 for disaffected teens.
