Mummies (and daddies and carers!) view of Ancient lives, new discoveries

Tuesday 9 September 2014, 10.00-12.00
Room 5
£10, Under 16s free, booking essential

We are delighted to offer a dedicated time for parents and carers to visit this groundbreaking exhibition of eight mummies from ancient Egypt and Sudan.

On this exclusive morning you won’t feel pressured to keep your kids quiet, you can meet other parents and carers who want to experience a bit of culture, and you’ll have the time to explore this fascinating new exhibition. You’ll also be able to hear from the Exhibition Curator, who will introduce you to the intriguing stories of these mummies.

You will be able to take your buggy into the exhibition space or leave it in our buggy park. There will be baby changing and feeding facilities, as well as space reserved for you to have tea and coffee. You are more than welcome to feed babies in the Museum, and there are some private rooms for feeding if you prefer. You’ll also be treated to a complimentary cup of tea or coffee, and the cafés will be open throughout the day if you need to buy snacks or drinks.

Please note, although you need to select a timeslot to book, attendees will be able to arrive at any point between 10.00 and 12.00 for admission to the exhibition.
