Egypt in Scotland

THEY BELONG IN A MUSEUM! AND THAT'S WHERE THEY ARE: Scotland's Ancient Egyptian Collections.

I have not been to all of these, but I have visited and enjoyed the Egyptian collections at the National Museums Scotland in Edinburgh, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, and the McManus Art Gallery and Museum in Dundee.

I have given a few links above to online tours of Scottish Egyptian collections. Many of the Scottish museums featured in the first link have such tours. It sometimes requires some poking around to find the Egyptian material, but you are likely to find other interesting exhibits from antiquity while you're looking.

Something for your lockdown museum experience.
