Unlock the mystery of ancient Egypt and explore the incredible story of the international race to decipher hieroglyphs.
Following a blockbuster show at the British Museum, we are proud to host a new touring exhibition telling the story of the Rosetta Stone, the decipherment of hieroglyphs and the unlocking of the secrets of the ancient Egyptians.
Join us on a journey to unearth the central role hieroglyphs played in the life and afterlife of the Egyptians. Explore this free family-friendly display featuring ancient interactives and Egyptian objects, on display for the first time in Northern Ireland.
You can also learn about Lisburn’s connection to the tomb of Tutankhamun and links to fine Egyptian linen in our gallery tours. And, our Egyptian-themed workshops explore life in Ancient Egypt and the curious connection between decipherment, code-breaking and weaving.
