Full description
Journey through more than 3,000 years of history. Get priority entrance to the museum and explore Ancient Egyptian civilizations through exquisite objects. Suitable for adults and children alike, the museum now extends over 4 floors.

The Egyptian Museum (Regio Museo delle Antichità Egizie) was formally founded in 1824. It followed the acquisition of a large collection by King Carlo Felice. The collection had been assembled by the Piedmontese, Bernardino Drovetti. Just as the Drovetti Collection was being unpacked, the French scholar, Champollion arrived in Turin. Within a few months of excited activity, he had produced a catalogue raisonné (annotated listing) of the collection. It was Champollion who wrote, “The road to Memphis and Thebes passes through Turin.”

Wander among objects of everyday life, along with colossal statues, Egyptian mummies and amulets. Learn about the religious beliefs, lifestyle and traditions of the Nile and land of the pharaohs. See highlights such as the Turin Papyrus of Kings, the Pre-Dynastic Mummy, Gebelein Canvas and Papyrus of the Strike. Marvel at the Tomb of Kha and of Merit, the Nefertari Kit and statuary and Temple of Ellesija.

Excellent guide. Highlighted all the appropriate exhibits.

We had a charming and knowledgeable guide whose explanations were salient and enlightening. I highly recommend this tour and thank our guide Monica, whose English is excellent, for a most interesting and well-presented tour of an amazing museum. The museum itself is beautifully laid out and the displays leave one speechless.
