  • Amazing museum, allow plenty of time because you can easily spend hours in there. A huge range of fascinating artefacts which are thousands of years old, including people! 
  • Those visiting Turin cannot help but enter the museo Egizio. A unique experience enriched by guided tour, in our case with Ilaria, a young girl, who led us with his passion on a trip very exciting. Dive inside this museum it's like to breathe the story in every sense of the word. Unique.

  • My vote does not go to the museum itself, but to the staff entrance ill who did store (having already let down the vest) backpack. Of course, rules are rules! Although my backpack was moooltooo smaller than the allowed sizes. Nothing to say but if we then looking around there were girls with huge bags and oversized! So I wonder: "because they did not have to leave your luggage?" The whole world is country ...

  • 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.
