I love the Petrie Museum, but weirdly it doesn't even feature in most of the 'secret London museums' guides – perhaps because it doesn't have any big headline exhibits like the Horniman walrus or the Elephant Man's skeleton. It's just an old-school museum (think Year 8 school trips) that's absolutely crammed with fascinating artefacts in wood-and-glass cases.

Went there with six friends and my family... it was awesome!!! Never knew that there exists such a mysterious place, especially the collections are amazing!!
