A world of wonder Founded by Walter Bagshaw at the beginning of the twentieth century, the museum was created for the education of local people, and to introduce them to civilisations and cultures from around the world. A hundred years later, this award winning museum still fulfils that vision. Bagshaw Museum is one of the few places in the north of England that offers children the opportunity to handle and investigate real objects from Ancient Egypt.
This visit is designed to inspire young people with the wonders of this ancient civilisation and give them a personal encounter with real objects. Children will learn about the work of archaeologists and will have the opportunity to use their investigative skills to explore a replica tomb and handle objects. The children will be required to develop theories, analyse different types of evidence and present their findings in a plenary session.
