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.

Fantastic museum in term of location, design and art. I have seen many around the world and once I’m proud of an Italian project. Congratulations to the directors Just a negative note: dirty walls just after the exit are quite disappointing after the immersion in...More

Perfect! However some texts are placed low below the artifacts; to read them, one has to bow to the ground level to decipher the words.

Turin is a beautiful city, very authentic but I had no idea of the quality of this Museum. The pieces they have are real treasures. The setting of the collection is also very user friendly. Even though I went with ny husband I am sure...More

We visited the museum first a few years ago and it was a mesmerising experience. Incredible treasures and solid XIX century museum installation. The renovation changed everything, and not for the worse. A little bit more approachable than before, it attracts many more people. But...More

The collection here is remarkable and well worth the visit. The explanations are generally quite good. If you plan to visit a lot of museums in the area consider getting the annual Torino museum pass

Amazing museum!!! Do not dare miss it. Spent 3 hours there, could easily have bern there longer. Incredible to think of the foresight of the people involved.

Quite extensive collection and if you don’t really have the chance to go to Egypt then this is the next best thing to get to know a bit about the ancient Egyptians. Pre book your ticket online because the queues can be very long.

Brilliant exhibits and great narration via audio set (included in the admission price). Mummies, tombs, papyrus and sculptures are fantastic. Great that the museum allows baby stroller.
