Out Of Egypt and into the New Forest

Out of Egypt is an interactive, curriculum linked exhibition coming to St Barbe Museum from 16 January to 27 February 2016. If you are teaching Egyptians this term, this is not to be missed.

The Exhibition

C58S203-Photo 3

This exhibition looks at the rites and rituals associated with the religious beliefs of ancient Egyptians. The passage from life to the afterlife was a central component of their belief system and the items displayed offer a fascinating insight into this world and its unique symbolism.

Featuring original artifacts from the Hampshire Cultural Trust collections, the exhibition has been designed to appeal to school children and families through a host of activities. Displays include coffin masks, animal mummies, canopic jars, amulets, scarabs and a range of shabti figures.

Free Teacher Private View

Members of the Learning Team will be on hand to answer questions about the exhibition and our offer to schools on Monday 18 January 2016, 5pm – 6.30pm at the exhibition private view. If you would like to attend this event please email Rebecca at learning@stbarbe-museum.org.uk.
