When I first read about an exhibition at The Atkinson in Southport, recreating Egyptologist Anne Goodison’s house out of paper, I thought it would be a fairly small affair. But, when we visited The Atkinson this summer, I was pleasantly surprised by what I saw.
Friday, 24 October 2014 – the opening of the new Egyptology gallery at The Atkinson in Southport, and a date which had been in my diary since it had been announced.
Southport is only a 25-minute ride on the local Merseyrail train service for me, so with my three-year-old in tow (my girls are beautifully enthusiastic about museum visits!) and camera with a full charge and a clean memory card, we hopped on the train then made the three-minute walk from Southport station to the Atkinson.
