On September 22nd the Bolton Museum opened the doors to an incredible 10,000 visitors, all eager to see the exhilarating new gallery which celebrates an exceptional collection of over 2,000 Ancient Egyptian artifacts. The renovation of the six gallery spaces used to create this exhibition was fully funded by Bolton Council and has provided an extraordinary space in which to tell the story of the ancient objects which feature in the collection.

Fusion worked with Leach Studio to assist with the design and installation of a range of AV interactives throughout the gallery.

The project included installing a laser HD projector, with audio supplied by Fuzzy Duck, within the replica full-scale of the tomb of Thutmose III.  Fusion also supplied the pre-wiring LED lighting to Leach Studio, which was installed in the mummy’s showcase within this replica tomb.

In addition to the impressive tomb display, Fusion provided audio soundscapes which fill the five self-supporting glass structural arches housing a mass display of artifacts, creating a stunning walkway through the gallery.

Sam Elliott, Crescent and Collections Manager said: “On our opening day the museum received more than 10,000 visitors, testament to how much this means to local people. The new galleries have received outstanding praise from visitors, council members and sector colleagues thanks to the hard work of our museum team and the exceptional quality of the design and delivery from our partners at Leach Studio.”
