Ancient Egypt extravaganza at RAMM

Book in for some Ancient Egyptian fun at RAMM on Saturday 29th October – a stone’s throw from Exeter Central station.

With sessions starting at 11am, 12.30pm or 2pm (booking required), learn about life and death in Ancient Egypt. Find out about and help with a re-enactment of the mummification of Shep en-Mut. Have a go at the addictive Ancient Egyptian game of Senet. Join the Scribe School and even learn how to write in hieroglyphs. Tickets are £3 for children (16 and under), and free for accompanying adults.

Taking the train
RAMM (The Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery) is just two minutes’ walk from Exeter Central station (turn left out of the station’s main entrance – see map).

Trains from Exmouth to Exeter Central run half-hourly through most of the day (seven days a week). An adult Off-Peak Day Return is just £4.30. 5-15 year-olds are half price, and under 5s go free. Groups of three to nine people get a third off. The journey takes 25-30 minutes.
