The other permanent exhibits include 'Death and Life in Ancient Egypt,' 'Archeology of Sudan,' 'Rock Art of North Africa,' Tu powstała Polska (It was here that Poland was born) and Pradzieje Wielkopolski (The Prehistory of Greater Poland). Relating to the Ancient Egyptian-themed exhibitions, there is also a three-metre-tall granite monolith, the Obelisk of Ramesses II, located in the courtyard!
