What to expect
For many children the process of mummification and the chance to see mummies close up will be fascinating and inspiring. However, if you would like to know more about what you and your family will see, you can download a selection of images before your visit.
Free family trail
Pick up your free family trail at the exhibition entrance, or download it. It’s filled with facts, stories and activities to build up a fascinating picture of life in the Nile Valley.
The exhibition features fully accessible interactive screens, enabling visitors to unlock the mummies’ hidden secrets for themselves.
You can explore more about mummies and ancient Egypt with free sessions in the Museum’s Samsung Digital Discovery Centre at weekends.
Under 16s go free
As with all our special exhibitions under 16s go free, but need a ticket. 16–18 year olds receive a discount.
Kids eat free
You will receive one free child’s meal when you buy an adult main meal. The Gallery Café is near the exhibition space.
If you want to know even more, have a look at the selection of ancient Egypt-themed books for children in the Museum shops or online.
