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. If you're anything like me you'll emerge blinking and newly obsessed with ancient Egypt.
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!!
