No trip to the Royal Cornwall Museum is complete without a visit to the Museum’s shop.  To further enhance your children’s learning we are now offering special Ancient Egyptian Goody Bags containing related items including a replica Scarab beetle, a Papyrus bookmark featuring the Hieroglyphic alphabet, a notebook and pencil.  These items would normally retail at £3.20 but to schools visiting for an Ancient Egyptian – Tales from the Tomb workshop they are available at a reduced cost of £3 each.  If you would like your children to take advantage of this offer please advise when booking your workshop.

In the meantime – why not download 2 of our colouring pages to tide you over!
