We're raising £7,395 to conserve Perth's much-loved Egyptian Mummy, Ta-Kr-Hb, so her story can be shared with visitors at the new City Hall Museum.

As part of the cultural transformation of the city, Perth City Hall will open as a major, fully accessible museum in 2022.

The museum will showcase objects from one of Scotland's oldest and most important public collections, and a number of star exhibits will be displayed in the new galleries.

One of the most popular and significant is an Ancient Egyptian Mummy. Believed to be a female dating to approximately 760 525BC, Ta-Kr-Hb was presented to Perth Museum in 1936.

Almost 85 years later, Ta-Kr-Hb needs your help. Now too fragile to be displayed in public, she urgently requires conservation to ensure her preservation for future generations and so her story can be shared in the new museum.

The total cost of conservation work needed is £16,608. Culture Perth and Kinross, the charitable trust which manages Perths museums and galleries, will ensure a contribution through public grants and several thousands of pounds has already been collected through previous fundraising efforts.

£7,395 still needs to be found. If you are able to donate, even just a few pounds, you can help guarantee a future for this ancient, unique and much-loved Mummy.
