Ashmolean Museum

Next Saturday 26 November the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford opens six new galleries to house its collection of mummies, coffins and artifacts from Ancient Egypt and Nubia (now Sudan). Many of these objects have been in storage for decades, awaiting the second phase of the museum's redevelopment. CLICK for The Telegraph slide show. If ancient mummies aren't your bag, there is plenty more to see, including Ancient Greek statues and paintings by Turner and Claude Lorrain (title link).
