What people are saying about Egyptian Museum of Turin

Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 2,212 reviews

As a lover of ancient culture and Egyptian civilization it is definitely an experience that I recommend. The museum has been reorganized since my last visit, with an even richer and more detailed collection and a very spectacular final hall. The guide took us through the museum, explaining the artifacts and telling us very interesting anecdotes. The experience lasted a little more than the planned two hours, a fantastic experience.

Ideal for those who want to make their trip simple and cheap: just establish an itinerary, book online the entrance to the desired sites and go there at the chosen time, without queuing up for tickets. Certainly convenient (you save on the total), it would be even cheaper if the discount on reduced rates were greater.

I thank Sofia, who with her competence and passion, has allowed us to immerse ourselves in an absolutely wonderful world! I recommend visiting the museum mano x mano with this talented guide!

Absolutely brilliant tour of the Egyptian Museum. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and he explained things really clearly. Would not hesitate to recommend others for this tour. 5 stars!

Experience to do absolutely. The presence of a guide is recommended to better appreciate the museum. Ours, Francesco, was able to make us relive ancient Egypt.
