We have arranged another special tour of the Golden Mummies of Egypt exhibition at Manchester Museum by expert Curator Dr Campbell Price.
After a hugely successful tour across the USA and China, this stunning exhibition offers unparalleled access to the museum’s world-class Egypt and Sudan collections.
Featuring more than 100 objects and eight mummies, Golden Mummies of Egypt presents a rich perspective on beliefs about the afterlife during an era when Egypt was part of the Greek and Roman worlds.
The exhibition is held in the museum’s brand-new Exhibition Hall, which has been created as part of a £15 million transformation.
We will meet inside the building, by the main entrance of the gallery on Oxford Road. Welcome refreshments will be served by the pop-up café, next to the museum’s Exhibition Hall, from 2.30pm. The tour will start promptly at 3.00pm.
Good to know: Places are very limited. If you manage to book a place, please arrive in good time to enjoy the full experience.
