Resorts near Museo Egizio

The Museo delle Antichità Egizie is the only museum other than the Cairo Museum that is dedicated solely to Egyptian art and culture. Many international scholars, since the decipherer of Egyptian hieroglyphs Jean-François Champollion, who came to Turin in 1824, spend much time pouring over the collections. It was Champollion who famously wrote, “The road to Memphis and Thebes passes through Turin”.The collections that make up today’s Museum, were enlarged by the excavations conducted in Egypt by the Museum’s archaeological mission between 1900 and 1935 (a period when finds were divided between the excavators and Egypt).The Egyptian Museum in Turin has begun 2009 an important project which wants to widen spaces in order to enhance the collections through modern museographical and museological criteria. The Museum will be open all over the period of restoration and the New Egyptian Museum inauguration is scheduled for the year 2015.

    The Museo Egizio in Torino, Italy
    This is my second visit to the Museo Egizio, but the first after the renovation. The museum is well organized and extremely interesting. There are thousands of artifacts and several human and animal mummies. One of the last rooms houses several big statues. Highly recommended visit if you are in Turin and chances are that if you are in Turin, you are there for this museum. Most information is in Italian, English and Arabic.
    Thank you very much.

    Wonderful museum of old Egypt!
    Museo Egidio is an Egyptian Museum located in the center of Torino, the main city in Piedmont, in the North of Italy. I came here at morning and really I was almost all day (about 7 hours) visiting the facilities and all rooms, where you can see a lot of objects related with most of the dynasties in old Egypt like little statues, big statues, sarcophagus, mummies of animals and persons, typical Egyptian paintings, mud vessels and some others. An impressive museum, the best one related with old Egypt I have ever seen (I have not been to Cairo). Also, the best room called Kings room, you can see in a dark atmosphere some big statues of different Egyptian dynasties. Top museum, especially for Egyptian-lovers. Essential!

    Tell your MUMMY - it's great!
    Entrance to here was included with our Turin Visitors card - a bargain for starters! Having been previously to many Egyptian Museums you might wonder how this place is any different? I think the main difference is the way the displays and put togethers, a real overload of information, in such detail, you would take literally all day to read everything. The displays are so big, they take up huge high ceiling rooms, the pieces really do tower over you, giving you the total scale of how amazing these things really are. This place definitely deserves the badge of NO.1 place to visit, so don't be put off by the number of people who go here - theirs room for you and, of course, your MUMMY too!

    Fantastic
    I came to Turin to especially see this museum - I got my entry through the Torino pass. It’s a great museum with a free audio guide available via a QR code, the signs are all in italian and also in english and there is a very handy convenient cafe at the half way point to refresh. They have some wonderful mummies and they explain the progression of mummification through the years very well. What is nice is the mummie exhibits are marked and there are warning for those who could be sensitive to that. They have a lot and I did multiple entries to go and see everything because they have some fantastic items including tunics, makeup sets, hair accessories, Canopic jars and there cases a range of sarcophagus. I highly recommend doing one of the tours with the tour guides as it was really informative. The negatives: It’s a bit of faff having to book your ticket online with the Torino pass and then have to stand in a long line to get in activated. Compared to other museums there are less staff around at other museums it’s one staff member per room but here it was one per floor pretty much. The gift shop could use some more items.

    EXCELLENT EGYPTIAN MUSEUM IN TURIN, ITALY
    The Turin Egyptian Museum has several floors of mummys and Egyptian relics recovered from tombs in Egypt back in the early 20th century. I have seen the Egyptian collections in the British Museum and the Cairo Museum and The Turin collection rivals both of those. We bought tickets ahead of time on the internet and spent about three hours there.

    Great Museum
    This is a great collection of Egyptian artefacts in a modern and well laid out museum. Good lighting also helps to provide dramatic effect particularly with the statues and mummies. Perhaps a few more interactive displays would have made this 5 stars.

    A brilliant introduction to Ancient Egypt.
    One could spend an entire day here and still not see everything. The descriptions (in Italian and English) are clear and informative. There's a convenient café providing refreshments and also a snack lunch, as and when needed.

    Egypt like never before
    Well, this was one of the most educational and compelling tours we took. Our guide, Nasr Ammar was so knowledgable, it was like walking back in time to the glory days of Egyptian culture. Mr. Ammar even taught us how to read hieroglyphs. This was to be a two-hour tour and it could have been a three or four hour tour. The museum, as we learned, is the best for antiquities and only second to Cario's museum. I urge you to take the tour and make it a day. We certainly enjoyed Nasr, both personally and professsionally. A real scholar.

    Definitely a museum to visit
    I was surprised by the size of the collection. It covered all aspects of Egyptian life over 4000 years ago including a wig of real hair. Although we were tired when we entered the museum we still took over 2 hrs to go round it. The insight into the lives of the middle classes was fascinating.

    A must-see for anyone interested in Ancient Egypt
    This museum is a must-see for anyone interested in Ancient Egypt. A free audio tour is available via QR code, so bring your ear buds/headphones. There is an amazing number of exhibits, and signage is in Italian and English. The visit starts with a history of the museum, explaining how these artifacts came to Italy, before the start of the exhibits. Also, there is a very convenient cafe with excellent paninis, bagels etc, which provided a much-needed break during our four-hour visit.

    The Museum is one of the most important of its kind in the world thanks to it vast collection and the many different scientific and educational activities it carries out. But what makes it truly unique is its special exhibit setup. The museum is located inside the Mole Antonelliana, a bizarre and fascinating monument which is the symbol of the City of Torino. And the various areas inside the Mole Antonelliana were the starting point for the Swiss set designer François Confino who, with talent and imagination, multiplied the museum's itineraries. He created a spectacular presentation that offers visitors continuous and unexpected visual and acoustic stimuli, just like when we watch a film that involves and moves us.
