Pharaoh: King of Egypt presents the splendour and power of the ancient kings and queens in this major touring exhibition from the British Museum.
Encounter life-size statues and sculptures from royal palaces, beautifully carved stone reliefs from ancient temples and intricate jewellery and papyri.
While many of the surviving objects project the image pharaoh wanted us to see, the exhibition invites you to explore the realities and challenges of ruling this dynamic and unique civilisation.
After a blockbusting tour around the UK, this is the final chance to see these amazing treasures outside of London. Don't miss out!
