Young readers may be familiar with Percy Jackson, young hero of the Olympians, Gods and Monsters series by author Rick Riordan. Percy thinks he is like every other kid-until he learns that, well, he is a demi-god, and the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. His book adventures begin in The Lightning Thief, now a major motion picture!
On Thursday, February 4, Penn Museum will give away free preview passes to guests who request them, WHILE SUPPLIES LAST! (Preview is Thursday, February 11, 7:30 pm at the AMC Lowes Theater in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.)
Percy Jackson fans will feel right at home in the Penn Museum's gallery suite, Worlds Intertwined: Etruscans, Greeks and Romans where they'll meet up with a variety of Greek and Roman gods-including, if you look closely, the Greek god Poseidon!
Save your Percy Jackson movie ticket stubs, and continue the adventure at the Penn Museum-where we'll give adults $2 off, seniors and youth $1 off, admission donation, February 13 through March 2010!
