Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology

About the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology

Named after the founding father of modern Egyptology, this museum is housed within the university, and is a classic old-fashioned collection.

Expect lots of glass cases with lots of stones, pots and artifacts, each carefully labeled.

Might not appeal to people after bit more interaction, but that's part of its appeal, a solidly good collection of antiquities to look at.
