  • 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 »

  • The Petrie has one of the best Egyptology Collections in the country. It may be small but it is optimised to show as much as possible. The staff here are really friendly and has an easy to find location. They hold some really fascinating talks here too.
  • Very interesting place, owned by UCL. It's open in the afternoon and free!. Lots of statues, ceramics, hieroglyphs, a few amazing mummy cases. Lots of stuff to see if you're interested in ancient Egypt.
  • A fantastic collection, a must see for anyone with any interest in ancient Egypt. With its location in Bloomsbury, you can go right after seeing the British Museum's Egyptian collections. Entry is always free. Friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable staff make a visit that much better. Some say this two room museum, which houses some 80,600 artifacts, is too densely filled, but I think that's a good thing as I see something new every time I'm there. It's a great place for adults or children. In addition to free trails for all ages and more kid-orientated activities during opening hours, the Petrie hosts a number of evening events. They are usually aimed at adults but there are fairly frequent family events as well. Most are free and those that are not usually include refreshments in the small price of entry. A schedule can be found online, comes up on a google search, or on leaflets at the museum. Step-free access is available through the building next door, just read the sign on the door, ring the bell, and someone will come down to show you the way.
  • A small gem close to the British Museum. A great way to spend an hour looking at lots of Ancient Egyptian artifacts, especially jewellery, pottery and stone carvings. There's a kid's quiz trail and very small shop. Not as crowded as the British Museum and great for any budding Egyptologists.
  • Fantastic place to visit, so much to see and very friendly Staff. Highly recommend going to have a look round!
