On 28 April the World Museum opened the doors of its new Ancient Egypt: A Journey Through Time gallery, revealing one of the UK’s most significant collections of ancient Egyptian and Nubian antiquities.
The gallery has trebled in size to create the biggest-ever display area for the museum’s ancient Egypt collection. At 1,000 square metres, it is the UK’s largest ancient Egypt gallery outside of the British Museum.
The gallery takes visitors on a journey spanning 5,000 years of history; from the time of the first settlers in the Nile Valley through to the impact of the Roman Empire. Visitors will find out about Liverpool’s long connection to excavations in Egypt and Sudan, and how thousands of artefacts made their way into the Museum.
