Turin Egyptian Museum | WEEKENDinITALY

Devoted exclusively to the art and culture of ancient Egypt, the Egyptian Museum in Turin is home to one of the largest collections of Egyptian antiquities with over 30,000 artifacts. The collection is the most important of its kind after the Cairo museum. The decipherer of Egyptian hieroglyphs, Jean-François Champollion, was one of the first among the many internationally renowned scholars who arrived in Turin (Champollion arrived in 1824). These scholars devoted themselves since then to the study of the collections, thereby confirming what Champollion had written: "The road to Memphis and Thebes passes through Turin.”

The Egyptian Museum (its proper name is Museum of Egyptian Antiquities) is a set of collections overlapping in time - including the discoveries made as a result of excavations in Egypt by an Italian archaeological mission between 1900 and 1935. The museum includes mummies, papyri and everything related to ancient Egypt (including taxidermied animals). The Museum is divided into four floors (three floors above ground and one under ground) with a chronological itinerary. The Museum also has an important library and spaces dedicated to restoration and study of mummies and papyri.

In the year 2015, the Egyptian Museum in Turin reopened its doors to the public - after extensive renovation and with a new layout. The Egyptian Museum in Turin is one of the most visited museums in Italy-and well worth the trip to Turin!
