Free to visit, the Petrie Museum of Egyptian and Sudanese Archaeology is home to one of the most important collections of Egyptian and Sudanese archaeology in the world. This extraordinary collection tells the stories of the lives of ordinary people who lived along the Nile Valley thousands of years ago. Inside you’ll find papyrus and stone fragments inscribed with hieroglyphs; musical instruments and children’s toys; thousands of beads and amulets; ancient mummy cases and the treasures buried with them for the afterlife; and the oldest woven garment in the world: the Tarkhan Dress.

We are happy to announce that the museum is open to the general public Tuesday-Friday 1pm-5pm and Satudays 11am-5pm and that BOOKING IS NO LONGER REQUIRED
