The Totally Chaotic History Museum Trail

Explore the amazing world of Ancient Egypt this Easter by taking on The Totally Chaotic History Museum Trail.

This fun trail for families, organised by Kids in Museums and Walker Books celebrates the release of Totally Chaotic History: Ancient Egypt Gets Unruly, the new book from hit historian Greg Jenner and our very own Curator of Egypt and Sudan, Dr Campbell Price.

Pick up your activity sheet at our welcome desk and explore the intriguing objects that have survived from Ancient Egypt and the people who used and made them. Pretend to be a pharaoh and plan what you would take with you to the afterlife and learn more about the hundreds of Ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses. Complete the trail and get a free Totally Chaotic History sticker!

You can also take part in a competition to win a copy of Totally Chaotic History Ancient Egypt Gets Unruly and a Double Art Pass Plus Kids donated by Art Fund. Design your own hieroglyph and tell us what it means. Share your drawing on Twitter/X or Instagram with the hashtag #TCHMuseumTrail and tag @kidsinmuseums for a chance to win.*
