  • One of the milestones for who goes to Turin is certainly this museum. Absolutely deserves to be seen and for fans and scholars of ancient Egypt would say it is a place to be seen at least once in their lives.

  • We booked the tour with the Egyptologist, however I believe that the use of audio guide can be a very valuable tool to visit the Museum. Scheduled time, preferably in the morning when it was cooler, especially if you go with children ...

  • To visit a wonder that not everyone knows about. Recommend to visit the Museum with a guide. Maybe little noticed; shame really.

  • 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.
