About
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 MUST! OUTSTANDING COLLECTION
Aug 2021
Turin is considered to be the city where Egyptology began; its Museum of Egyptian Antiquities holds artifacts obtained in the excavation sites studied by the Italian Archaeological Mission in the 1900s, consequently to the (failed) Napoleonic Campaigns in Egypt. Thousands of artifacts, sarcophagi, mummies, papyri, jewels and statues are now exhibited in this impressive museum up to par with the Vatican, Louvre, MMA collections.
Among the most significant vestiges found are the intact tombs of Kha and Merit, along with the rupestrian temple of Ellesija.
One could spend days in this amazing museum: Exhibits are comprehensive and well curated with concise explanatory notes in Italian, English and Arabic..
Highly recommended.

Soooo much content
Jul 2021
My eldest daughter loves all things ancient Egpyt, so this was a must-see for us, and it didn't disappoint. The exhibits were all well-designed and maintained. Sarcophaguses, mummies, papyrus scrolls, artifacts galore, all combined with tasteful use of modern technology made this one of the highlights of our time in Turin.

Stunning!

Well laid out, excellent explanations. Not to be missed if at all interested in antiquities! How they were able to move and transport these colossal one block stone pieces out of the desert and have them arrive undamaged in Italy is in itself an amazing feat! The statue of Sethy II is THE masterpiece, in my humble opinion.
