Turin Egyptian Museum Guided Tour: Who Wants to be Pharaoh? Ancient Egypt in a Nutshell | WEEKENDinITALY

For families who like to take part in a fun and informative experience, this guided tour is an ideal choice. The visit will be offered in the form of quiz: the Museum egyptologist proposes a series of questions through which the children can reflect on the different aspects of the Museum and its precious collections. Each answer, obtained also in collaboration with the parents, will reveal the most fascinating aspects and curiosities of pharaonic culture "in a nutshell."

 

Tour Itinerary

The guided tour focuses on a selection of display cases distributed throughout the exhibition areas. The route begins in the historic rooms of the Museum, where you have an opportunity to understand why the Turin Egyptian Museum is the most important in the world after the one in Cairo. Then, we’ll take a close look at other material, which, room after room, will offer an opportunity to discover the characteristics of ancient Egyptian culture, in all its aspects - art, religion, work organisation, and writing.
