  • Well-run Museum rich in finds of Egyptian age, ideal for those who have passion. You can find every object used by the Egyptian population and the sarcophagi, which they alone are worth the visit

  • Little to say on the Egyptian Museum. You just have to see it and turn slowly to all rooms. Very useful the audioguide included in the ticket. Very nice new layout. If you can, go for an afternoon of one business day in autumn/winter: this will avoid the queues at the ticket office and school groups visiting rightly.

  • This was a very interesting museum with an accompanied audio tour which was very helpful. In addition to taking you through the history of the Egyptians they have several of their additional study pieces on display. They have the complete contents from an undisturbed tomb which was fascinating. We spent several hours in the museum, luckily they have a cafe in the museum about half way through to provide a welcome rest.
  • This is probably the best museum of Egyptian History in Europe. You can fully appreciate the whole Egyptian history through a guided tour with multi language support and try the experience to walk in rooms full of mummies.
  • Surprised to find such a huge egypcian museum in Torino. I strongly recomend to visit it.
  • Beautiful museum, not expensive for what it has inside. Audioguides are free and describes well what's inside. Something to se when you're in Turin
  • The oldest and biggest collection of Egyptian stiff outside of Egypt. What more do you want? Loved the open storage areas.
