From 1st February 2018, the Garstang Museum will be open between 10am and 4pm every Wednesday and Thursday.
The majority of the Museum’s collections derive from the excavations of renowned archaeologist, and the Museum’s namesake, John Garstang. Today, the Museum functions as a teaching resource for the University, and the fascinating collections are on display for public viewing.
Nicola Euston, Museums & Galleries Manager at The University of Liverpool, said: “The Garstang Museum functions as a unique and fascinating resource for the University, both in providing excellent teaching opportunities and as a public gallery, so it’s wonderful that we are able to extend opening hours for the Museum.”
The Garstang Museum houses artefacts from prehistory, the Near East, the classical world, Meroe and has world famous Ancient Egyptian collection. Visitors can find out what excavation was like one hundred years ago, journey through the Egyptian past from the time before the pharaohs to the dawn of Christianity, and come face to face with a New Kingdom mummy.
If you’re interested in finding out more about the Garstang Museum read their blog, and you can follow them on Facebook to keep up to date.
The museum can be found on the ground floor of No. 14 Abercromby Square (access via rear entrance). Find them on Google Maps.
