The British Museum

The British Museum's Egyptian Rooms house one of the world's best mummy collections, worth a trip from anywhere.

If you visited the museum before 1999, you most likely could never forget the two jam-packed (but rather worn) rooms of Egyptian funerary displays. Mummies were displayed four to a case, stacked warehouse-style. Explanatory labels were meager. Lighting was poor. Crowds were overwhelming.

Since then, the rooms have been completely redone. They are well-organized, well-explained in accompanying printed matter, and well-lit (a major improvement for the B.M.). Related mummies and artifacts are exhibited together and pretty much arranged chronologically around the perimeter and center of the rooms. Many of the mummies from the old rooms have been dusted off and refurbished...but there are many new items worth seeing. 

You will also want to visit the Lindow Man display. Lindow Man is the only bog body displayed at the British Museum, and its exhibit is rather hidden on the second floor.
