About

The Petrie Museum is home to one of the greatest collections of ancient Egyptian and Sudanese archaeology in the world.

Inside the museum here at UCL, you'll find papyrus and stone fragments inscribed with hieroglyphics, ancient mummy cases and the treasures buried with them for the afterlife.

Every one of the 80,000 objects tells a story. Come and explore how ordinary people lived from the time of the pharaohs and see the clothes they wore, the tools they worked with, and what their homes looked like.
