This summer, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery is hosting the UK’s largest ever exhibition of ancient Egyptian artefacts on loan from the British Museum. PHARAOH: King of Egypt features amazing objects from the British Museum’s world-class collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts, and allows visitors of all ages to explore the myths and realities of being a king in ancient Egypt.

Andy Horn, Exhibitions Manager at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery comments: “We are very proud to be hosting this amazing exhibition in Birmingham this summer. The exhibition showcases some of the UK’s most fascinating ancient Egyptian artefacts, and it complements Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery’s own impressive Egyptian collection. And alongside the exhibition throughout the summer break, we will have lots of Egyptian-themed family activities on offer.”

John Orna-Ornstein, Head of London and National Programmes at the British Museum, said: “I am delighted that PHARAOH: King of Egypt is coming to Birmingham. It’s the largest group of Egyptian objects ever lent in the UK – a real once in a lifetime opportunity to see some extraordinary objects at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.’
