Millionth visitor for travelling exhibition of Egyptian relics

The Bolton News

 A touring exhibition of Bolton Museum’s Egyptology collection has attracted its one millionth visitor in the Far East.

The exhibition — Quest For Immortality: The Bolton Museum Collection — is currently in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, and will move to Shanghai, in China, in May.

A council spokesman said: “To have reached the one millionth visitor in a country which has 23 million inhabitants is quite something in itself and is a benchmark that very few exhibitions meet.

“To date, the Quest for Immortality exhibition has been exceptionally successful and to think that a million people have seen the artefacts from Bolton Museum is pretty outstanding and something we are very proud of.
