The Petrie Museum is part of the University College London and was originally set up in 1892 with a bequest of the collection of Amelia Edwards. It is named after Professor William Flinders Petrie who worked on many Egyptian excavations. This museum houses over 50,000 artifacts recording every detail of the native's life; culture, sport, occupation etc. Visitors are taken through a timeline of events in the Nile Valley, from the Pharaoh, Ptolemaic to the Islamic period. This place surely warrants a visit.
