    Great resources. I work in a primary School in Filton. We are currently studying Ancient Egypt and would have come to your museum to see the fantastic Egypt display. But if course are unable to Do you have any resources you can share with us so we can make an Egyptian exhibit at school?

    Ancient Egypt is one of our favourite topics but, sadly, the Learning team are still working from home and can’t access any of our resources. The good news is that we are running free webinars for schools and we have one coming soon about one of the mummies in the museum; visit the Learning page for information and to book. A few years ago local schools helped to make and decorate a ‘tomb’ in the museum. The children made shabtis, Canopic jars, wall paintings and even a mummy in a coffin! Why not make your own objects and open an Egypt gallery in your classroom? We’d love to see photos of this!
