“Just like museums used to be!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2012

Display cases stuffed with items and all with either typed or hand written cards - just like museums used to be! There are some wonderful artefacts although the lighting in some parts is not good and a magnifying glass could be useful, as some items are very small! Well worth finding and visiting if you are an Ancient Egyptian History buff!

“for those obsesed with ancient Egypt”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2012

a great museum, doesn't have the big statues or mummies of the BM, but it has plenty to keep an Egyptian nut busy for several hours.

“A must see for any archeology geek”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

Squeezed in between other university buildings, quite hard to find, free to visit and completely enchanting, Petrie Museum makes you forget about the time passing. It almost looks like someone's work space filled in with his findings and achievements more than an actual museum. One of my favorite places in London.
