Temporary closure of the Petrie Museum

The Petrie Museum will close temporarily from 25 July 2021 while collection storage is improved

The Petrie Museum of Egyptian & Sudanese Archaeology is delighted to announce a major project taking place this summer to improve the storage and care of the collection. The project will replace a number of old cases in the back staircase and elsewhere with state-of-the-art storage and create additional working space for vital collection work and conservation. The fire alarm system will also be upgraded during this time. This project is supported by an award of over £50k from the UCL capital plan, and over £40k from our donations fund.

In order to facilitate this work the museum will be closed to visitors, researchers and commercial hire between Sunday 25 July 2021 - Friday 24 September 2021. For enquiries during this time please contact museums@ucl.ac.uk

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused and we look forward to welcoming you back from Saturday 25 September 2021. We will no longer require you to pre-book tickets, you will be able to visit at any point during our opening times.
