As work on Bolton Museum’s new Egyptology gallery progresses, new designs for the £3.8 million project have been released.
Bolton Library and Museum Services are working with museum exhibition designers, Leach Studio, to create a bespoke gallery entitled Bolton’s Egypt.
Conceptual designs have been revised following feedback from the public and partners and these are the latest artist’s impressions of how the gallery will look.
Visitors to the museum will get the chance to view the designs more closely via a display situated in the foyer and on social media.
Bolton’s Egypt, which is set to open in 2018, will be divided into sections depicting the history and importance of the borough’s Egyptology collection.
These include: the Portico; Rotunda; Land & People; and Beliefs.
