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.

Museo Egizio is a very special museum. It is dedicated only to Egyptian art and culture and even globally next only to the museum in Cairo in this discipline. I had no idea how popular the museum was. I spent 20 minutes outside waiting in...More

Museum was very nicely laid out and we used the audio guide to learn more about the artifacts. Highly recommended for history buffs.

The museum is second only to Cairo in terms of the number of artifacts and objects that they own. Each piece is in absolutely pristine condition but what makes the museum particularly fascinating is the effort they’ve made to show how/when the museum came into...More

It is staggering that there is such a depth of artefacts outside of Egypt in Turino. To truly get to grips with the total contents of the museum would take a couple of days. The museum offers an audio tape package that allows you to...More

A bit pricy but very interesting and informative, the audioguide make it all, but it a bit tirering to listen to everything.
