You may have noticed that new designs for Bolton Museum’s new Egyptology gallery have been drawn up for consideration.
This is the second set of conceptual images for the gallery, by Huddersfield-based museum exhibition designers Leach Studio.
Initial interpretations were revealed in December and shared on social media.
The new images reflect suggestions from members of the public and partners, plus more detailed consideration has been given to the museum collections and how artefacts can be best displayed.
The artist’s impressions will continue to evolve as part of the design process and will be once again shared on social media.
Each area will continue to depict a different stage of the visitor experience to the gallery, named Bolton’s Egypt: the Portico; Rotunda; Land & People; and Preparing To Live Forever.
In addition, there will be a section devoted to the original Chadwick Museum – depicted as a doll’s house set in parkland - and how Bolton came to acquire such an extensive Egyptology collection.
Over the coming months we would like to work with businesses to understand how you may want to use the gallery in the future. Corporate events? Talks and tours for your clients as a welcome to Bolton? Private themed dinners? If you would like to work with us on this please contact Samantha.firstname.lastname@example.org
The project is due to complete in 2018.
