London Unveiled

great places to visit off the beaten path.

The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology

While the British Museum is often the first thought for many visiting London in search of Egyptian artifacts, the Petrie Museum houses 80,000 Egyptian and Sudanese artifacts – making it one of the most significant museums of its kind in the world.   The collection is full of many ‘firsts’ – their website details all the highlights of the collection.  In addition it is only a short distance north of the British Museum.  Located on the campus of University College London the collection is open from 1pm – 5pm Tuesday through Saturday.  Admission is free.
