Tutankhamun’s Tomb: Children’s half term workshops

Rediscover the tomb of Tutankhamun at the Egypt Centre this November half term as you dress up as early explorers in search of wonderful things.

Find out why mummification was so important to the ancient Egyptians as you practice on our dummy mummy, play the boy King’s favourite game of Senet, and discover the truth behind the made-up curse of Tutankhamun as you write your own spooky story that’s sure to steal the show.

Then handle real ancient Egyptian objects before making your very own Canopic jar to take home with you!


Tickets are Free 

Tuesday 1  November – Friday 4 November

Suitable for ages 6-11 

10 am – 3 pm


Parents are to drop children off in the morning and collect them at the end of the workshop. Please provide children with a packed lunch. 


The same workshop is repeated each day.


(As places are limited, we ask that your child only attends one day during the week to allow others the chance to participate).
