The Petrie Museum houses an estimated 80,000 objects, making it one of the greatest collections of Egyptian and Sudanese archaeology in the world. It explores life in the Nile Valley from prehistory through the time of the pharaohs, the Ptolemaic, Roman and Coptic periods to the Islamic period.
The Petrie Museum is a university museum. It was set up as a teaching resource for the Department of Egyptian Archaeology and Philology at UCL, and is now open for the public to explore. Why not combine this with a visit to the British Museum?
The Petrie Museum is part of UCL Culture, which also includes the Art Museum and the Grant Museum of Zoology.
