Discovering Ancient Egypt

Journey along the Nile to unravel the mysteries of Ancient Egypt with this must-see exhibition featuring over 240 objects, including intricately decorated coffins, mummies, statues, and extracts from the Book of the Dead.

The WA Museum has partnered with the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden (RMO) in the Netherlands, the National Museum of Australia, the Queensland Museum, and the Australian Government International Exhibitions Insurance (AGIEI) Program, to bring a collection of treasured Egyptian antiquities to Perth, in an Australian-first.   

With a vast history and culture spanning more than 3000 years, Ancient Egypt continues to fascinate people around the world.

Taking visitors on an immersive journey of stunning rare objects on loan from the RMO’s significant Egyptian and Nubian collections, the exhibition also includes digital experiences and hands-on activities for all-ages.

From early exploration to cutting-edge modern research, the lifestyles of the ancient Egyptians are unveiled – their religion and society, their creativity, and belief in an afterlife, where they could live for eternity.

Discover captivating stories, behind-the-scenes insights, and a special program of events, in this must-see exhibition unravelling the mysteries of Ancient Egypt.
