 Manchester Museum houses a varied and impressive arrangement of Egyptian Artifacts. In my opinion the display method of the several mummies in the collection is poor, as they lie with their feet towards the front on a fairly flat surface. The exhibit of the funeral goods from 'The Tomb of the Two Brothers' is well worth a visit. This was a complete burial and so contains a better variety of objects.
Also of note in the collection are various fragments of carvings from Akhetaten.
A great deal of information is on display concerning the Manchester Mummy Project. This makes for informative and enlightening reading, and the objects on display illustrate well the research carried out

 The museum in Stockport is primarily devoted to local history, but it does house a Mummified hand, which is quite famous locally. In addition there are a few little bits and pieces, Shabtis and fragments of pots etc.

The downstairs gallery at this museum was recently refurbished, and the new display was imaginatively advertised as 'The return of the mummy's hand'.
