  • The Petrie Museum is well worth visiting, as there is an amazing collection of Egyptology, very rich, very beautiful and rare pieces, such, this metal dress for the dance (Paco Rabanne invented nothing :)), or a lot of objects of the everyday life. We also discover interesting William Petrie and endearing personality. Feel free to do honor to this Museum!

  • A small museum but has a lot of interesting artifacts. I visited on a special event when they had talks and drinks on offer. Plus, interactive experiences. Not to be missed!  more »
  • A hidden gem down a back street in UCL. The Petrie collection was taken out of London for safe-keeping during the Second World War and, when it returned, was housed in a former stable block, where it ...  more »

  • Has some cool things. However is definitely more suited to those who are extremely into Egyptian archeology. Mostly just plaques and pottery but did have a few unique items. Was nice to see but I wouldn't call it a 'must-do' in London. Also very small (compared to other museum's) two very small rooms.
  • Wonderful place full of treasures. Every lover of Ancient Egypt must visit it. Awesome!
  • One of London's greatest secrets. Some cool sarcophagi, but mainly more 'down-to-earth' stuff, like tools, pottery, jewellery. You can get a feel for how people lived FIVE THOUSAND YEARS AGO, when woolly mammoths still roamed the earth. Fascinating stuff. Plus they do occasional handling sessions with children, where they can handle these ancient artifacts and speak with an Egyptologist. Some corners of the museum are lacking a bit of 'zazz', but the staff are good at explaining things and making history 'come to life'.
  • Good but only of interested hugely in ancient Egypt. It is focused more on smaller private items like pottery rather than statues of kings.
  • Love it...they really need a new place...family friendly...my kids loved it!
