Animals and Pharaohs: The Animal Kingdom in Ancient Egypt

The Louvre examines the bond between the Egyptians and the animal world, recalling the essential role of animals in pharaonic civilisation, from ancient writings to funeral rites.

Some of the highlights include frog-shaped amulets, snake coffins, a crocodile mummy and baboon obelisk, and the artefacts are enhanced with multimedia features including 3-D and touch screens.

Two thirds of the 430 works on show have been restored especially for the exhibition while many come from the Louvre storage rooms and have never been on public display.

Wed-Mon 09.00-18.00. Wed-Fri 09.00-22.00
