The Egyptian sculpture gallery's unique atmosphere provides a truly memorable space.
Exhibits include stylised depictions of kings, deities and symbolic objects ranging from the time of the Old Kingdom to the middle of the Roman Period, as well as architectural pieces from temples and tombs.
An imposing stone bust of the great pharaoh Ramesses II presides over the room, close to the world-famous Rosetta Stone with its three inscribed scripts which led to the decipherment of hieroglyphs – Egypt's ancient form of pictographic writing.
