Behind the scenes of Ancient Egypt

Work in progress on the new mummy room in the Ancient Egypt gallery

World Museum's new ancient Egypt gallery extended into gallery space unused for 35 years, creating the biggest ever display area for our ancient Egypt collection. At 1,000 square metres, we house the UK’s largest Ancient Egypt gallery outside of the British Museum.

A project this large required a lot of work from across National Museums Liverpool's departments, including curators, conservators, handling technitions and many more. You can find out what went on behind the scenes here.
