What to expect

Visit the second most important museum in the world entirely dedicated to Egyptian antiquities! Your guide will know how to select for you the most important exhibits of the museum, so you will enjoy a surprising experience!

The Egyptian Museum in Turin opened its new and fascinating exhibition in 2015 and its wonderful collection is now spread over four levels. The tour will guide you in the selection to discover the most important finds. A journey through more than 3,000 years of history of Egyptian civilization, suitable for adults and children.

The ‘Regio Museo delle Antichità Egizie was formally founded in 1824 with the acquisition of a large collection by King Carlo Felice. This was assembled by Bernardino Drovetti of Piedmontese origin. Champollion arrived in Turin as the Drovetti Collection was being unpacked, and, within a few months of excited activity, produced a catalogue raisonné of the collections. It was Champollion who famously wrote: "The road to Memphis and Thebes passes through Turin".

You will wander among objects of everyday life, colossal statues, mummies and amulets to discover the religious beliefs, lifestyle and traditions of the Nile and the land of the Pharaohs.

Not to be missed: the Papyrus's Kings, the Pre-Dynastic Mummy, the Gebelein Canvas, the Papyrus of the Strike, the Tomb of Kha and Merit, the Nefertari Kit, the statuary and the Temple of Ellesija.
