The Egypt Centre is a museum in Swansea with lots of objects from ancient Egypt
The people who work in the museum are called volunteers. They will show us around the museum, and teach us all about ancient Egypt.
We will leave our bags and coats in the Shared Area on the rack
In the Museum are two rooms called galleries. One is called the House of Life, and one is called the House of Death.
These rooms are very dark to keep the objects safe. There might also be a humming noise from the air conditioner which keeps the objects at just the right temperature. I can use a torch to look more closely at the objects.
The volunteers will help us do lots of activities.
They might show us how to play an ancient Egyptian board game
They might teach us some maths and writing in Egyptian
We might get to dress up in ancient Egyptian clothes
And we might get to do a pretend mummification.
At lunchtime there is a quiet area we can go and sit to eat our packed lunches. I can also go here if it gets too noisy or busy in the museum.
There is also a toy pyramid I can play with if I need some quiet time.
When we have finished learning about ancient Egypt we will collect our bags and can have a look at the gift shop.
If I need some help during my visit, or need to know where the bathroom is, I can ask in the shop.
When I get back to school I might help write a nice letter thanking the volunteers for teaching me so much about Egypt!
If I, or my teacher, needs more information about the Egypt Centre we can look at this Link.
