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.

What a beautiful museum! I have been trying to go to this museum for two years and between work and study I could never find the time. I finally went! I spent an entire afternoon admiring every hall. Their collection is immense!

What a wealth of information and material in this Museum! You can really feel the aura and greatness of the Egyptian civilization and makes you understand how advanced they really were! Place is indeed well organised and staff helpful whilst the exhibits are really well placed and explained! You have to come here if you go to Turin!!

The Egyptian Museum of Turin is a museum that you could visit a number of times and always learn something new! An impressive collection of Ancient Egypt beautifully displayed makes for a very pleasant and educational visit.

This museum was incredible! I still can't get over the volume of artifacts they have. I have never seen so many mummies on display anywhere! It was well worth the trip.

Turin Egyptian museum is renowned all over the world. What made my visit memorable was our guide Ardena Caramello. She was able to navigate us in the different rooms exposing the evolution of the Egyptian culture and history in a very entailing way.

In a city full of attractions, the Egyptian Museum stands out. The facilities underwent an extensive renovation which made the visit much more pleasant. We took a guided tour with an Egyptologist appointed by the museum itself. It was 2 hours well spent and interesting. Perhaps the only flaw was the large number of visitors who were not part of...

The museum required at minimum 2 hours the breeze through. Upon payment you are given a museum tour device to listen to so bring some headphones to be more comfortable! Beware of which tour you choose as it shows the tour by time, we anticipated 2hours so we chose the 90 min option which said family...we got a kids version... More

Very good visit! Our 9 year old son really enjoyed it. We came in very close to closing so we tried to see everything as fast as we can but it was still very interesting and enjoyable! Next time when we come back to Turin, we come here earlier so we can truly take our time enjoying every bit of... More
