About The Egyptian Museum:

To quote one of the founding figures of Egyptology: "The road to Memphis and Thebes passes through Turin".

What Champollion was referring to was the vast wealth of objects and documents that the city had accumulated since the 18th century. It's a treasure that has remained with Piedmont's capital for over 2 centuries, and which is currently on display in the Museo Egizio - the only museum outside Cairo dedicated entirely to ancient Egyptian art and culture.

With this handy combo ticket you'll receive skip-the-entry to its extensive display of 6000+ artefacts plus 48-hour access to the City Sightseeing Turin tour buses.

Key parts of the collection include the oldest known copy of the Book of the Dead, the Turin King List papyrus and the extensive Drovetti collection. The latter was acquired by King Charles Felix of Sardinia in 1824 - marking the first large-scale influx of artefacts since the mid-18th century.

Museo Egizio's collection ballooned throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, culminating in the addition of the Temple of Ellesyia. This was extracted during the Nubian monument salvage campaign of the 1960s. Italy had helped the Egyptian government save priceless antiquities from Lake Nasser, which had formed as a result of the newly built Aswan High Dam. As a reward for their aid, the rock-cut temple was relocated to Italy for permanent display at the Egyptian Museum.
