Egyptian Museum Of Turin - Review

“The road to Memphis and Thebes passes through Turin,” wroteJean-FrançoisChampollion, quite the pro at deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphics, famously wrote.He wasn’t exaggerating – the Egyptian Museum of Turin is the only museum besides the Cairo museum that is dedicated solely to showcasing a collection of Egyptian art and culture. The museum’s archaeological excavations carried out between 1900-1920 yieldedartefacts which were divided between the excavators and Egypt, and these artefacts which have been enlarged and are displayed at the Museum today. The nucleus of the collection includes 300 pieces retrieved by botanist Vitaliano Donati from Egypt, as commissioned by King Charles Emmanuel III in 1753.

The collection is just priceless with a range of fascinating items inclusingAssemblea dei Re (Kings Assembly), a collection of statues representing all the kings of the New Kingdom, sacrogaphi, mummies and most startling of all – three copies of the ‘Egyptian Book of the Dead’, including the most ancient one. The illustrated version and the personal copy of the First Royal Architect Khaare on display for visitors but it so happens that the director of the Museum has been requested to remove the two copies of the book more than once and stock them away as the papyrus on which they inscribed is said to emanate "negative energy". The books remain on display till date.

Not particularly for the faint-hearted, is it?  This museum is steeped in ancient history, a haven of fascinating information for anthropologists, Egyptologists and the average intrigued tourist alike.

Egyptian Museum Of Turin, Turin Reviews

  • Great museum, hugely intetesting too. There were many exquisite artifacts and even larger statues that really helped me to envision the scale and grandeur of some of the sites. I particularly liked the drawings of tomb layouts and the photographs of the original locations. Great value as an audio guide device was provided as part of the entrance fee. Reserve a day for this one!

  • Definitely a must see if you are a museum junky or enjoy ancient Egyptian history. The collection is just massive... expect to spend a couple of hours here. The audio tour is included with your ticket price so make you grab a headset and tablet on your way in. There are a couple of options on how long you want the audio tour to last. If you choose the longer one go with some energy reserves because it takes some time! There is a little cafe inside to grab some snacks/drinks and take a break about halfway through. Bathrooms are clean and the building is climate controlled so it is a nice break from weather.

  • Amazing collection of artifacts and antiquities. Plan on spending at least two hours here if you like browsing museums. The self-guided audio tours are good, but test your device before you enter the museum to ensure it is charged and working. Photos without flash are permitted unless otherwise marked.

  • Very interesting museum. I learnt more about the pharaohs than I ever did at school. The small problems was that the signage was a little eccentric. The drinks bar was greatly appreciated. Not a place for young children.

  • Very interesting. Good explanations. A little too many sarcophagus on exhibit, half would be enough. Makes the tour too long and gets boring seeing the same things again and again. A room for history instead of sarcophagus would be nice.
