Overview
More
The Museo delle Antichità Egizie is the only museum other than the Cairo Museum that is dedicated solely to Egyptian art and culture. Many international scholars, since the decipherer of Egyptian hieroglyphs Jean-François Champollion, who came to Turin in 1824, spend much time pouring over the collections. It was Champollion who famously wrote, “The road to Memphis and Thebes passes through Turin”.The collections that make up today’s Museum, were enlarged by the excavations conducted in Egypt by the Museum’s archaeological mission between 1900 and 1935 (a period when finds were divided between the excavators and Egypt).The Egyptian Museum in Turin has begun 2009 an important project which wants to widen spaces in order to enhance the collections through modern museographical and museological criteria. The Museum will be open all over the period of restoration and the New Egyptian Museum inauguration is scheduled for the year 2015.

The largest collection besides Cairo. Fascinating to see mummies and sarcophagus for real. The beauty of the artwork and inscriptions is fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the rooms of the village, with some unusual findings of everyday items, and the complete tombs. Prepare for a long...More

What an amazing museum! There is so much to see. The audio tour is very good and allows you to chose a 1 hour or 1.5 hour tour - we chose the longer tour and it was well worth it. I'd suggest you allow at...More

Very well designed, thought through museum. Primarily you reach the top floor and make your way down to the calumniation of the collection. Simply fantastic experience.
