Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology
The Petrie Museum houses an estimated 80,000 objects, making it one of the greatest collections of Egyptian and Sudanese archaeology in the world. It illustrates life in the Nile Valley from prehistory through the time of the pharaohs, the Ptolemaic, Roman and Coptic periods to the Islamic period.
We are open Tuesday to Saturday 1 - 5pm and located on Malet Place, off Torrington Place (opposite the large Waterstones).
The Museum will be closed on 21st December and throughout January and February 2014, in order to have major repairs to and installation of new-lights in the museum space - cases will be better lit; with greater conservation protection for objects, as well as having a more environmentally sustainable system in place. Meanwhile, the Petrie Museum is going on tour around UCL Campus and Camden with events excavating Pots and Petrie - we may pop-up somewhere near you! We plan to re-open the museum again on Tuesday 4 March. Visitor opening times and hours as before Tuesday - Saturday, 1-5pm.
