This gallery has been designed to introduce younger visitors to Ancient Egypt. Displays cover those topics usually taught at school such as food and farming, building, writing and beliefs. Labelling has been designed to help parents and teachers guide younger visitors, but there is plenty here for everyone to enjoy. While younger visitors are playing with the toy pyramid and temple, or trying out a word search, others can enjoy looking at amulets, animal mummies, and exquisite jewellery. Then why not try out our giant game of senet, played by the ancient Egyptians? This gallery was funded by the DCMS/Wolfson Museums and Galleries Improvement Fund.
