About

The Egyptian gallery is really special – not only because of the large number of perfectly preserved artefacts it contains, but for the huge variety of objects on display.

Here you can marvel at enormous stone statues, tiny lucky charms, precious burial goods and entire coffins.


The Ancient Egypt gallery is a partnership between the Great North Museum: Hancock and The British Museum.
