The British Museum in London houses one of the largest Egyptian collections in the world. A small selection of the objects on display are shown in the British Museum Gallery.

OK, so this isn't a collection or Museum, but it is well worth a visit when you are in London..
The Science Museum is unsurprisingly dedicated to Science and Technology, including impressive displays on spaceflight, aviation and suchlike. For the Egyptologist there are some objects of interest though. In the Museums exhibit on weights and measures there are several Ancient Egyptian weights, as well as examples from cultures such as Ancient Roman and Chinese measuring jugs and weights.
If you're in the area the museum is free to get into after 16:30 each day.

This museum is DEFINITELY one of the most amazing I have ever
visited. Sir John Soane was an English architect who died in 1837.
During his lifetime he collected an amazing assortment of antiquities,
antiques and works of art. The museum is housed in Sir John's
house, with everything as far as possible exactly as he left it.
Everywhere you go there are plastercasts of busts, fragments of
statues, priceless paintings and several architectural models.
