New gallery re-displays world-renowned Egyptology collection

Bolton Museum's new gallery, 'Bolton's Egypt', will be officially opened, and a Preview held, at 6 p.m. on Friday, 21 September 2018. The opening will be performed by Professor Joann Fletcher and Doctor Margaret Mountford. The Gallery showcases the world-renowned Egyptology collections, their history and their collectors.     

This exciting venture, announced in the Spring of 2017 and completed on schedule this Summer, was made possible through financial support from Bolton Council, Mr Edwin Davies, CBE, and DCMS/Wolfson Museums and Galleries Improvement Fund. The Preview has been sponsored by the Museum's  partners in the redevelopment, Leach Studios, Willmott Dixon and W M Dyer Electrical Contractors.

During the past year, Ian Trumble, Collections Access Officer for Archaeology, Egyptology and Archaeology, has been available to give talks to interested audiences in the area on the subject of the Egyptology collections and their history, and the designs for the new Gallery. He can be contacted at  ian.trumble@bolton.gov.uk or 01204 332245.
