Recommend this exhibition
This now permanent new gallery showcases what it was like to live in Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome and features objects on loan from the British Museum as well as those from the collections of the Royal Institution of Cornwall.
The mummified remains of Iset-tayef-nakht – an Egyptian priest, craftsman, husband and father who lived more than 2500 years ago – have long been the museum’s most popular exhibit and are displayed alongside a statue of Sekhmet, the Lion Goddess, and bronze figurines of Hermes and Cerberus.
