Egyptian Museum Guided Tour with Skip-the-line Entry - Turin, Italy

About This Tour

Duration: 2 hours
Location: Turin, Italy
Product Code: 35628P2

Activity Details

Visit the second most important museum in the world entirely dedicated to the Egyptian Antiquities: our guides know how to select the most important exhibits of the museum, so to 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 guides you in the selection and discovery of the most important finds. Suitable for adults and children. A journey through more than 3,000 years of history of Egyptian civilization. 

The Regio Museo delle Antichità Egizie was formally founded in 1824 with the acquisition by King Carlo Felice of a large collection. 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 the objects of everyday life, the colossal statues, mummies and amulets, to find 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.
