Virtual Visits Ancient Egypt

Virtual Visits – Ancient Egypt

Virtual visits work as a stand-alone event or they can complement a physical museum visit – you could bookmark your topic with a virtual visit and a school trip!

These online sessions are delivered by a member of our Education team who interacts with your class.  All you need is internet access and an interactive whiteboard.

“Thank you so much for the session this morning. I thought it went brilliantly. The children were really engaged and feedback afterwards was very positive.”
