A full day visit to the museum runs from 10 am to 2 pm. During the visit the children will split into groups who rotate around 3 different sessions. Each session is delivered by an enthusiastic member of our experienced education team.
Session 1: Marianne Brocklehurst and Ancient Egyptian Exhibition tour
The children are given an interactive tour of the Ancient Egyptian exhibition by Marianne Brocklehurst. Artefacts will be introduced and explained in the context of Marianne’s journeys to Egypt.
Session 2: Object Handling
In this session the children get to handle replica artefacts. They will work creatively in groups to produce museum labels for the objects.
Session 3: Anubis Headdress
Each child will produce their own Anubis headdress. They will discuss the materials that would have been used, the representation of Anubis and the role of the priests in the temples in Ancient Egypt.
