After the museum of Cairo , this one is the most important egyptian museum in the world. It contains around 30.000 pieces. One of the most important finds is the tomb of kha and Merit, made with gold and wood and still intact.

The museum is overwhelming. It starts to get repetitive and there are too many people. The audio guide gets boring quickly but the collection is impressive.

One of the top attractions in Turin is this world-class museum of Egypt. Worth a visit. So worth it.

This museum is one of the most famous museum in Turin. If you take a chance to visit in one moment you will get feeling like that you are in old Egypt.

Splendid museum that hosts one of the largest collections of Egyptian artifacts outside of Cairo. The museum is located in the center of Turin and is "da vedere" for anyone interested in this period of history. The museum is currently being renovated, but several rooms are still open that feature Egyptian sculpture, relics from the tomb of an important official as well as other items and objects.

Wow, I didn't think I would come to Turin to see Egyptian art, but there I ws and it was spectacular. Really really special artifacts and also one of the biggest collections anywhere. Fascinating to contrast this ancient culture with the Italian all around you.

La perla artistica di Torino, insieme al Museo del Cinema, il Museo Egizio, è unico al mondo nel suo genere, oltre quello che si trova al Cairo. E' stato appena rinnovato, con un interessante percorso multimediale, in un allestimento di oltre 10.000 metri quadrati e 3.300 reperti esposti.

Il migliore museo egizio d'Italia, secondo solo a quello del Cairo per la qualità e la quantità degli artefatti esposti. Tra maschere, statuette, sfingi e altro c'è da divertirsi!

Una delle prime cose che ho visitato qui a Torino è stato proprio il Museo Egizio, conosciuto in tutta Europa le mie aspettative non erano alte, ma altissime. Che dire? Sono stato così contento di scoprire che si, il museo era all'altezza delle aspettative. Sarà difficile trovare in Italia o anche in Europa un museo (a parte forse il British Museum) che possa competere o eguagliare le bellezze custodite qua dentro. Come le numerose sfingi e la stupenda statua di Amon, probabilmente risalente al regno di Tutankhamen.
Un museo dove venire con i bambini, assolutamente.
