Egyptian Museum (Museo Egizio)

Explore the history of the pharaohs of ancient Egypt in the only exclusively Egyptian museum outside of Cairo.

Turin’s Egyptian Museum is one of the most visited attractions in the city, and rightly so. Holding over 6,500 artifacts in its displays and over 25,000 in storage, the museum is the only place you can see full collections of Egyptian artifacts outside of Egypt.

Housed in a palace from the 17th century, the museum takes you through the near 6,000-year history of Egypt. The collections have been sourced since 1630, when the first Egyptian artifact was purchased. Since then the collections have grown and with numerous expeditions undertaken throughout the early 1900s, the museum has become truly impressive.

Stepping into the museum, you’ll immediately see large sphinxes and sarcophagi of pharaohs. The best way to visit the museum is along the suggested route, so head upstairs to begin your exploration of the time when pharaohs still ruled Egypt.

The first gallery takes you through a number of outlying villages of ancient Egypt that were excavated by the museum. Wander through the burial exhibition next door and learn about the intricate methods Egyptians used to preserve their deceased.

Back downstairs you’ll find the Temple of Ellesiya from Nubia, painstakingly reconstructed inside the museum. Make your way to the final hall of the museum and you’ll find its most prized collection, the contents of the Tomb of Kha. This exhibit holds over 500 pieces from a single tomb, including multiple sarcophagi, as well as furniture, food and artworks.

If you are traveling with children who are a bit spooked by the concept of death, skip through some of the galleries which have burial-related exhibits, since a number of the mummified remains can be a bit frightening for some.

The Egyptian Museum is open to the public from Tuesday through to Sunday. Allow at least three hours to see the museum. Depending on your interest in history and ancient civilizations, you could easily spend half a day wandering the galleries. Children enter for free and those from 18 to 24 years old pay a reduced admission price.
