The National Museum of Antiquities successfully concluded 2008 with a visitor number of 120,000. In the past five years, this number was only exceeded in 2007, when over 122,000 people visited the museum.

Nine exhibitions

Like last year, the large number of visitors was due to the sizeable and varied range of exhibitions and activities for young and old. In 2008 there were nine temporary exhibitions on display. Four of them are still on display in 2009:

The family exhibitions 'Animal Mummies' and the summer event for kids 'Egyptomania' in particular attracted a lot of young visitors to the museum.
