The Burrell collection houses a wide range of art objects. Among them are various Egyptian statues, carvings and assorted other items. The collection also includes a mummy case for an Ibis.

As I recall, photography is not permitted in the collection.

Hunterian Museum

University Avenue, Glasgow

The Hunterian museum is part of Glasgow University and it houses a large collection of objects covering many different cultures and scientific areas. It has a smallish collection of Egyptian objects on display, the most notable of these being the coffin and mummy of 'The lady Shep-en-Hor', and a temple wall carving of Ptolemy VI and Cleopatra II. The coffin is in particularly good condition and illustrates well the level of detail included in some coffin decoration.

The Museums Web Site is an example of how well a 'virtual tour' can be done. The section dealing with the Egyptian exhibits includes several photographs. There is also a report on an X-Ray study of the mummy.
