This Sunday spend some family time with Genghis Khan and his clan when dads are admitted free to the blockbuster exhibition in celebration of Father's Day, June 20. Forget finger-painted ties and smelly cologne because Dads who accompany their families to Genghis Khan: The Exhibition receive free entry for the price of a children's ticket. The go-to gift for the dad who has everything, Khan features more than 200 13th-century artifacts from his reign - never before seen outside Mongolia. Together, families will discover the innovation, technological mastery and culture of one of the world's greatest statesmen and most misunderstood conquerors in this one-of-a kind exhibition. And, as an added gift, the regular galleries of the museum are free to visitors who've toured Khan.
