Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum Questions & Answers

Tuoro sul Trasimeno, Italy

Will a curious and bright 5 year old be frightened? This particular child is quite well behaved and has visited many museums, but I'm concerned that the subject matter might be a bit too much.

The museum is kid-friendly. I didn't see anything that would frighten a 5 year old. They have an area with kid-friendly and touchable items.

One section has an optional walk-through room section that resembles the inside of a pyramid/tomb. It is not a scary thing, but part of the walk through includes dark areas, which may make some nervous. Parents can use judgement on this. However, it is an optional part and only a small percentage of the overall museum.

Nothing would frighten a 5-year-old. All the mummified animals and people are in one room, so you can avoid that room if you think the child might be freaked out.

My son was around 5 the first time we took him. He was fascinated and asked for books on the Egyptians when we got home. Only time he was frightened is when we took the kids during Halloween. They has people in costumes wandering around and one of the mummies surprised him . . . after he got over the scare he followed the mummy around.

I would agree with Ellen. I think he will do just fine.If you check in at the desk, they can tell you where the unwrapped mummy is, if you want to avoid it. Having recently gone there, I don't think there is a lot that would upset him. On the weekends they have special presentations- we went to one on the game of Senet. That was a lot of fun. They also have scavenger hunts for kids.I know they also have some workshops on hieroglyphics and cosmetics. They have a junior archaeology program for children at age 5 and up. There is a planetarium on the grounds with star shows. Check their website because I don't think all the workshops are given every weekend and I don't know if they are given during the week.

I would say the tomb room might also have such a potential, but it is such a small part of the museum and it is so clearly "fake" that it should not scare him. Also, i am not even sure it is accessible outside the guided tour. Overall it is a museum as any other, very much on the educative side.

I don't think a child such as you describe would be afraid. There are a couple mummies, one unwrapped that you might want to prepare the youngster for. Otherwise, good to go.
