  • Those who come to Turin puts it at the top of the schedule and will not be disappointed. Unnecessary spend words about this museum which, after the last setting, it is definitely a gem of the world Museum landscape. What convinces further will be the context: the most beautiful expression of the Piedmontese Baroque with, on the doorstep, the town square that will enchant you. Don't miss the nearby museo del Risorgimento,

  • The Museum is very well laid out and has plenty of artifacts. The audio guide clearly explains everything that can be of interest to you.

  • Very entertaining. A video guide was given to me in English on a phone with headphones. It gives you a tour through the Egyptian times starting from the beginning Usually I am not bothered about museums but this was very interesting. The tour last about an hour and 45 but you can choose which parts to listen about. It was very busy and reasonably priced.
  • As far as museums go, this one really is world class. Incredible displays with too much information to absorb. The hall of the kings is remarkable. Audio guides are very helpfull. It is modern with lots of multimedia facets. Worth every cent. My advice is to do it in reverse (start at the end). The displays get more impressive towards the end. We were tired and ran out of time so could not fully enjoy the last sections, which were the best!
  • Sure an excellence in Italy and the whole World. Unique relics can be found here. The tour is very enjoyable. Unfortunately waits can be hours long.
  • This museum is simply amazing, the displayed collection is breathtaking. All informational texts on objects are in both italian and english, plus ordering tickets via the online desk worked flawlessly. There's a 2 euro fee for ordering online, which i find ridiculous, but all in all it's still better than waiting in the line for 20 minutes.
  • I had very short time for Turin, so I decided to visit Egyptian Museum. Amazing experience not only because of the content, but also the environment: exposing, lighting, silence and audio/video guide. Although I was bymyself today, special thanks for caring/thinking about families/children ( Special program/ treasure hunting map). Deep bow.
