Description: The Museo delle Antichità Egizie is the only museum other than the Cairo...
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.

Torino hosts this little gem of a museum which is completely unexpected. An incredible amount of fascinating, awe striking collections of Egyptian artefacts, antiques and relics. It truly is incredible. I am hardly an expert on Egypt, not do I have a passion for the history but this museum can't help but take your breath away. We went on a... More

Having been to Luxor 4 times plus Cairo I can assure you that the quantity of exhibits and their colossal nature is well worth the visit even if you are not "in to Egyptian antiquities". It is truly magnificent. But beware do not spend too long in the first 3 rooms - there are another 9 to go and these... More

Truly amazing. With the floors having reopened after renovation the items are displayed clearly and well lit. the collection is immense and if, like me, you'd travelled to Turin for this collection you'll not be disappointed. Well categorised the galleries don't just tell of the exhibits history but about their impact on recent (by which I mean a few hundred... More

After its recent renovation the Egyptian Museum has probably became the second or third best egyptian museum of the world, just beyond the Cairo museums and Louvre. It is also one of the few italian museums designed and run in the same way as the most modern europen museums: very little dust, large, clean and well-furnished exhibition rooms, vast collections...

I went to the museum in the first week of March 2015. Was really looking forward even to the reduced area, knowing that work was going on in the other parts. But it was not very impressive. While it is appreciated how the statues and sculptures reached Turin from Egypt, the artifacts were a little dull/sombre and not too colourful... More

Unexpected to come across some really unique and well preserved Egyptian art and artefacts in Torino. Not crowded, not expensive, you might say well off the beaten path for an Egyptian museum. Worth visiting if in Torino.

Liked the layout and all of the artefacts were displayed well! The headset was a nice idea but the actual information was a little basic and not very interesting... "In front of you is a drawing of a woman"... I could gather that much myself, the information didn't get much more informative. Having visited the museum in Cairo and having... More

Visited Turin to view the shroud and was able to visit the Egytian Museum while we were there. This completed my trifecta of Egyptian museums! It is as detailed, interesting and unusual as the museums in Cairo and Vatican City. There are displays in the Turin museum that you will not see anywhere else. This is a must see!

If you are looking for mummies, burial rituals, all things Egyptian, do visit this museum. It is a fascinating place and very well laid out. The Hall of the Kings is a wow! To be able to view the well preserved exhibits is such a privilege.
