Owner description: 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.

A well laid out and informative display of genuine Egyptian artefacts. About one hour's worth so worth a visit even if one os not a history buff..

I'm sure this is true. The collection is superb and the very clever way it is displayed really adds to it. There are some wonderful statues,in a mirrored hall, so that you can see all sides of the statue. Really wonderful

Loved this - very amazing to walk by such magnificent statues, etc...ones you've heard about, seen in books or TV - right in front of your face. I felt transported back in time. I highly recommend seeing this. I believe it's suppose to be the 2nd largest Egyptian Museum in the world? I took tons of photos.

I visites the museum as a pre-visit for my next trip with the children. It is a beautiful museum, but you should read something in avance advance about it, of take a guided tour. The audio guide system is not worth the money. Mine was brooken (always playing n1, even if I type n14)

I have also visited the Cairo Museum (in 1995, so crowded and chaotic and short of English signage that I never found the mummy room) and Egyptian collections in the British Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art New York and elsewhere. Other museums may have more stuff, but none I've visited displays it so well. Every item in this museum is high quality and worth seeing. Every room and exhibit label is worth reading and informative, sparing you long descriptions of exact provenance and focussing instead on what is interesting about items and what they tell you about Egyptian life. The room showing objects from tombs of Kha and Merit is a particular highlight, but there are many highlights. As with the cinema and automobile museums, we allowed two hours for the visit and spent nearly four fascinating hours there.
