What to expect

Discover the Egyptian Museum of Turin during this private guided tour and go back in time to relive the splendor, luxuries and daily life of the pharaohs and queens of Ancient Egypt.

Your tour will start by walking through the majestic squares in the historic center of Turin. Starting from Piazza Castello, the ancient center of royal power, you will admire the sumptuous Galleria Subalpina, the Risorgimento Piazza Carlo Alberto and Piazza Carignano, close to the Renaissance Museum (one of the most important in Italy). Moving towards the Turin Lounge, Piazza San Carlo, and along the ancient Via Nuova (now Via Roma), you will return to the ancient Collegio dei Nobili and go back in time at least 5,000 years into the wonderful world of Egyptian civilization.

The Egyptian Museum of Turin houses about 300,000 finds, 26,000 of which are kept in warehouses for the purpose of scientific research. Mummies, papyri and funerary finds of the great pharaohs make it an unmissable stop for any visit to the city of Turin.

The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities was founded in 1824 thanks to the large collection of Egyptian antiquities of King Carlo Felice. Statues, sarcophagi, mummies, papyrus, bronzes, amulets, and everyday objects were first put together by the Egyptologist Vitaliano Donati and later enriched by Bernardino Drovetti, consul general of France in Egypt. Thanks to excavations conducted in Egypt at the end of the 19th century and in the Thirties, the collection continued to expand until it reached the extraordinary grandeur of today.

Discover the Isiaca Canteen (the first object acquired by the museum, most likely built in Rome in the first century AD for a temple of the goddess Isis), the little temple of Ellesija (the last object acquired by the museum thanks to a donation by the Egyptian government for Italian support in the rescue of the Nubian monuments) as well as a copy of the Rosetta Stone, now preserved at the British Museum in London.
