Families

For over a thousand years two cities of ancient Egypt lay lost under the sea. They were recently rediscovered by underwater archaeologists. This summer, dive in to reveal the stories behind the objects found below the waves!

 

Have you ever wondered how divers see under the sea?

How does a statue weighing the same as a killer whale end up in a museum?

How do people speak to each other underwater?

Follow our diver throughout the exhibition to discover more together.

Together you and your family can uncover the stories behind these special objects and what they tell us about the ancient worlds of Greece and Egypt.
