Bolton Museum, open now, www.boltonlams.co.uk/museum
More than 2,000 treasures from Ancient Egypt are on display in a new gallery in Bolton Museum. A full-size replica of the tomb of Thutmose III has been created that visitors can walk through – it also happens to be the final resting place of Bolton’s famous mummy, believed to be of royal descent. Part of a £3.8 million refurbishment, the five new rooms contain objects such as funeral masks and weapons. The town has a longstanding connection with Egypt, housing the largest Egyptian collection in a British local authority museum.
