This is a must for anyone with even a passing interest in Ancient Egypt. Located on the UCL campus next to their science library and literally across the street and half a minute away from the on-campus Waterstones/Fopp. It is also less then 10 mins walk from Euston station. What it lacks in size (it could be whizzed round in an hour if you so wish, or don't have much time) it makes up for in content. Some simply wonderful exhibits in an extremely important museum named after a trailblazing scientist who worked in the field until he was 87 years old! I loved some of the 4500 year old plus dresses and textiles on display, exquisite collections of shabti's, jewellery, pottery,bronze, and simply beautiful paintings of faces from the lids of sarcophogi. Open from 1pm-5pm Tuesday-Saturday and staffed by warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable staff. Recommended.
