The Egypt Centre has been running our award winning ‘Young Egyptologist Workshops’ for children since January 2002.

Each month the Egypt Centre offers a free workshop to a school who would otherwise not be able to visit the Museum. Our aim is to improve literacy and numeracy but most importantly to build confidence, self esteem and foster a love of learning.

Our Young Egyptologist Workshops are designed for children aged between 7 and 11 who would otherwise not be able to visit the Museum. They may be in need of extra educational enrichment or a self-esteem or confidence boost. We give priority to schools in WIMD40 areas. 


Each year we have a different exciting and engaging theme. This year’s theme is ‘Survival in the Afterlife’


One teacher commented saying that a particular child’s attitude to learning had changed so dramatically that she was now giving class talks on Egyptology and researching the subject in her own time!
