A beautifully arranged and wonderful museum. It doesn't have the size and glamour of the British Museum, but it's still incredible.
My partner was at a conference at the UoL all day and while waiting for him in the afternoon, I spent a very nice hour and a half at the Petrie Museum. We were lucky enough to have visited Egypt (Luxor, Nile/Aswan) in February this year during one of the quiet periods when tour companies were not sending out their... More
Free museum showing Petries collection. Most of the larger items are in other museums, but the pieces here were very detailed and clear. A very large collection within the university. Have done a course on egyptology so this was great to see as he was mentioned regularly.
Found this attraction completely by accident when looking for an apartment in London on Tripadvisor. I am so glad I did as I love ancient Egypt. No its not like the British, Turin or Cairo Museums. Its small compact and exhibits some 80000 artifacts the majority diminutive. Be aware that they only open from 1.00pm during the week. Entry is... More
This is an amazing collection of Egyptian artefacts and contains some absolute archaeological gems. But the interpretation is very out-dated - a few larger panels give additional information about some topics. But the object labels don't tell you anything apart from basic facts e.g. the museum accession number and how old it is. This frustrated me immensely! All their objects... More
This museum contains Mr. Petrie's collection of Egyptian artifacts that he collected through years of excavations. There is everything from tools to toys, packed into cases, with additional items available to look at in drawers underneath. Be sure to check the hours when it is open because they are a little unusual. It is in a university building, but easy... More
A short walk from the British Museum, this is the place to go for a more in depth look at Ancient Egypt. Somewhat hidden away, but well worth the effort. Great staff, amazing exhibit. No crowds, so you feel no pressure to keep moving before you are done with each part of the museum. Our visit lasted just short of... More
Our daughter wanted to see some mummy's. You are better of to go to the British Museum for that The Petrie luseum is a very small museum where the artefacts are displayed in the od fascioned way. Nice small museumwith very friendly staff.
This is an amazing place with plenty of Egyptian artifacts available to see. The children loved opening all the drawers wondering what they would find. Very friendly staff.
A great challenge to anyone is finding the place as it is so well hidden and the signposting is poor. Having said that once you arrive the museum is in such contrast to the nearby British Museum with its huge galleries and its charm lies in the somewhat old fashioned displays. The staff are very welcoming and genuinely pleased to... More
