Lets meet for brunch at Browns followed by the Egyptian exhibition at the museum

The exhibition features highlights from the British Museum’s superb collection of ancient Egyptian objects, the exhibition is the largest UK loan of Egyptian artefacts ever undertaken by the British Museum showcasing wonderful examples of sculpture, jewellery, palace ornamentation, papyri and funerary objects.

This exhibition explores the role of kingship in ancient Egypt. While many of the surviving objects project the image pharaoh wanted us to see, focus is also given to the realities and challenges of ruling this dynamic and unique civilisation. A special collection of Belzoni watercolours from Bristol Museums Galleries & Archive's own collections will compliment the exhibition explaining the layout and decoration of the tomb of pharaoh Sety I and tomb objects.

The exhibition is £5, payable on the door
