Study room

Please contact the department for an appointment if you would like to study an object in the reserve collection. Space is limited, so we recommend that you make the appointment at least two weeks in advance, giving the inventory numbers and details of the objects you wish to view.

Please let us know how long you will be using the study room, as it may be necessary in certain circumstances to limit the number of objects available.

Your application for admission must be supported either by a member of the academic staff of the Museum or by evidence of identification (passport, driving licence) and by a letter of recommendation from an academic institution or a person of recognised authority.

There are facilities for accessing material on video, DVD, CD and microfiche in the study room, as well as a photocopier. You may use your laptop in the study room. 

The study room will be closed 19 December 2014 – 2 February 2015.

If you need any extra assistance using the facilities in the study room, please contact egyptian@thebritishmuseum.ac.uk.
