The Egypt Centre

Come and explore a museum of Egyptian antiquities, become part of the preservation of the collection and be inspired to learn more about Egypt.

We have various FREE hands-on activities running throughout the day including:

  • Handle real ancient Egyptian artefacts
  • Play the ancient game of Senet
  • Write your name in hieroglyphs
  • Have a go at Mummification
  • See if you can solve the Pyramid Puzzle
  • Guess the animal

You can Become an Explorer with our Explorer Packs

These packs provide both a fun and educational way for children and families to explore the museum and learn together using hands-on based learning. Each contains an explorer backpack, an explorer hat, a magnifying glass, pencils, a ruler, and a fun activity pack to complete in the galleries. The packs are only £1 to hire from the museum gift shop, and families are able to take their activity books home with them.
