Bolton Museum reopens after £3.8m revamp

In Latest Projects, News by admin

This weekend Bolton Museum opened a series of new galleries. These Galleries celebrate the connection between Bolton and Ancient Egypt, highlighting the town’s world-class collection of Egyptian artefacts.  This refurbishment is just one part of a wider £3.8m project.

The five specially-designed Egyptian rooms were opened, alongside additional new spaces.  These included a gallery, nature displays and a local history section. Bolton’s Egypt contains over 2,000 different objects drawn from the town’s archive of over 12,000 items.

At the centre of the renovation is a full-scale recreation of the tomb of Thutmose III, discovered in the Valley of the Kings in 1898, which will exhibit Bolton’s mummy acquired in the 1930s.

William Dyer Electrical UK Ltd are very proud to be involved in this significant project. To be given the opportunity to use our wealth of knowledge and experience to help bring Ancient Egypt to Bolton.

Managing Director William Dyer who attended the opening evening said “Sometimes a project comes along that really takes your breath away and this project has been exciting and engaging from start to finish”
