About

An exciting exploration of life and death in Ancient Egypt, this exhibition combines the Museum's own Ancient Egyptian collections with a number of spectacular objects on loan from the British Museum.

The exhibition takes you through a fascinating journey which explores how the Ancient Egyptians were shaped by the Nile and how they lived their everyday lives as well as their mystical religious beliefs.

Visitors can take a dramatic journey through the transition from Life to Death by passing though a tunnel which spans a virtual River Nile.
