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.

I pleasantly remember school tours when I was a child at this fantastic place, Egyptian Museum has always been for the city of Turin its "must to see", and the expectations do not disappoint expectations, during the years there have been different renovations but It's with the latest one that Turin Egyptian Museum has caught its state of the art...

Such a beautiful collection depicting the lives and deaths of Egyptian kings and workers. A thoroughly remarkable and awe inspiring collection of artefacts. The audio tour is superb and so interesting, we learned so much and were very surprised and delighted.

It was an impressive collection, with thoughtful displays. It made me curious about the origins of the collection itself - some of the pieces were things one would assume would be in much larger and prestigious institutes.

Not since Cleopatra made her impressive entrance into Rome, has there been such a great display of her country's artifacts not only in Italy, but anywhere else in the world. The newly renovated Egyptian Museum is a marvel and is attracting locals in droves. Modern lucite cases, great lighting, and then to cap it all, the dramatic double hall of... More

The Egyptian Museum of Turin is a really elaborate museum. It has quite some history as to how the whole collection came into being. It may seem weird that one of the biggest Egyptian museum is located in the north of Italy. As it turns out, it all started by one person who started to buy Egyptian artifacts sort of... More

A big museum with a great collection of Egyptian artifacts! I spent three hours there, and I still felt that I hadn't managed to soak in all the information and history available. The museum itself is placed in the city center, just a 5 minutes walk from Piazza Castello. The queue was quite long on the day of my visit... More
