Mrs Goodison’s House: Ancient Egypt brought to life

This is your chance to step inside the home of Mrs Goodison, but this house is almost entirely made of paper and features live animation!

Artist Carol Hanson has created this magical world inhabited by Mrs Goodison and her collection over a hundred years ago. She had travelled to Egypt collecting hundreds of artefacts which she kept in her home in Bootle. Her collection is now on display for the first time in 40 years here at The Atkinson on our Discover Ancient Egypt Gallery.

This immersive experience is a great way for families to learn about this adventurous local woman and her fascinating Egyptian artefacts.
