The Nicholson Museum

By Gretel

Yesterday year 5 & 6 went to the Nicholson Museum to learn more about Ancient Egypt.

The Nicholson Museum is at Sydney University. We then took a bus at 8:45am and we got there at about 10:30am. I sat with Tori on the bus.

When we got there we sat down on the edge of the grass and ate our recess, then we went to the toilet quickly. After that we put our bags in some trollies. Then all of us got split up into four groups. Then our instructor lead us to our first activity which was we where aloud to touch ancient artifacts and to draw the things we picked up.

Then we went upstairs to see more ancient Egypt artefacts and i got dressed up as a mummy!

We then left the Nicholson Museum to go to the IMax theatre on the bus. The documentary was about mummification in Ancient Egypt.
