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.

An amazing experience. I went to this musuem with my mother who is and always has been very interested in this cultures history. Not feeling safe to go to Egypt itself, she has toured the Metropolitan Musuem in NYC and many other exhibits and had...More

Though this museum is chock-full of artifacts, the organization leaves lots to desire, especially when entrance for our family (paid for 2 kids and 2 adults) was over $60. For instance, when we entered we were handed audio guides that were not user friendly. They...More

This is a reason in itself to visit the lovely city of Turin. An extraordinary collection, beautifully curated. Filled with kids coming to wonder at its contents...should not be missed by them or anyone at any age.

The exhibits were excellent; possibly the best was saved for the end, the so-called Kings' Gallery, which had statues of Rameses II, at least ten of Sekhmet, as well as others. An excellent way to finish one's visit. One is issued with a multimedia player...More

Incredible museum, while you are in Turin you can’t miss it. Original pieces from a Italian expedition.

Unbelievable quality of presentation. Must be one of the best designed museums in the world. The Hall of Kings at the end is just fantastic and brings a wonderful visit to a perfect conclusion

I had been recommended this museum but it was much bigger and better than I had expected. The Italians had certainly removed a lot of fascinating items from the tombs. I now understand much more about Egyptian history.
