Some of the last Egyptian artefacts to go on display are unwrapped

Have I mentioned recently that the new Ancient Egypt gallery opens tomorrow at World Museum Liverpool? Only a few dozen times!  If you come to see the new gallery over the next few days you may notice that Mandy the Superlambanana, who usually stands in the atrium at World Museum, isn't there. This is because we need lots of extra space over the opening weekend so we sent our best shepherds (also known as Richard Roberts and Andrew Mountfield from the handling and transport team) to herd her away to the safety of a side room.  Mandy will be back out on display from Monday.
