  • Great organization like I said in the title really a pleasure and a boast that it is in Italy. I've been years ago and I liked it but now truly exceptional.

  • A well organized Museum with audio guides working perfectly. Definitely one of a kind (unless one has a chance to go to Cairo)!

  • What about on one of the most famous museums of Europe? The hotel is modern and functional at the same time making you feel in the historical period that represents, for every exhibit there is a full explanation with audio guide (free) and the staff is very friendly and cooperative. Weaknesses: ironically, its breadth: to visit it all, listening to just the most important audio tracks need at least 6-7 hours. The wardrobe is a fee, it costs 2 euros. There is also a bar in half Museum, not economical issues but in line with the services generally found in similar facilities (a pre-cooked by heat plus a cup of coffee and a bottle of water 8 euro). Ultimately, experience to recommend but only with due time availability.

  • 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.
