    Despite having already visited the Cairo museum, this one in Turin still has a large quantity of finds, even of great value and well preserved. The spaces available for visits, especially the guided ones, should be managed better as the groups often crossed each other creating confusion. However nice experience that I recommend to lovers of the genre.

    In two hours our guide took us to the various periods of Egyptian history, letting us immerse ourselves in the atmospheres of the various periods and inserting what we saw in the right context. The children were also enthusiastic and were not bored. Beyond the fact that the Egyptian civilization is fascinating, perhaps on our own we would not have been able to fully appreciate what this fantastic museum offers.
