Akhet Egyptology
Macclesfield

 

 

Macclesfield's West Park museum is a fine example of how interesting Egyptian collections can be found in unexpected places.

This is a surprising little museum housed in a fairly small brick building in one corner of Macclesfield's West Park. The contents were donated by the Brocklehurst family and include a complete cartonnage mummy case as well as an interesting display of every day objects.

In addition to the family's collection of Egyptian antiquities, the museum also contains a Panda which is labelled, in a very 19th century way, as one of the largest ever shot.
