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.

This place is definitely worth visiting. It has the largest collection of Ancient Egyptian artefacts outside Egypt. An entry for an adult will set you back 15 Euro. An electronic guide, in several languages, was included in the price, but I found it totally confusing...More

So much to see. Thus was a great museum and the audio tour was just right Only little complaint was that my audio box ran out of power just b4 the end and it wasn't worth tracking down and back to get a new one.

One of the best museum ever. Do not miss for any reason. They offer a multi-linguistic system so you get to understand very easily. The statuary is amazing.

This was an experience, but I thought it became expensive 15 euros after visiting the Egyptian exhibition in the British Museum for free.
