Dedicated solely to Egyptian art and culture, Museo Egizio houses the world's second-largest collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts. Founded in 1824 by King Carlo Felice, the museum now contains more than 30,000 exhibits, narrating the history of Egypt from the Paleolithic to the Coptic eras. Exhibits contain funeral furnishings and numerous objects of everyday use. Look for the altar of the goddess Isis and the intact tombs of the architect Kha, a builder of pharaohs' tombs, and his wife, Merit. The staff has painstakingly preserved these ancient objects, presenting them in a visitor-friendly layout that makes exploring ancient history fun and informative for of all ages. Guided tours are available with prior reservation.

Museo Egizio Reviews
We were initially unsure whether to commit to a visit but it was well worth it. So much in there we said you could spend a whole day. Amazing to see all treasures that went in tombs. Clear labelling..... more »
Museo Egizio is a fabulous museum, there is so much to see. It is huge and can easily take a day to absorb. There are so many artefacts to see and stories to read. more »
Museum has the magnificat collection. It really leaves a great impression after visiting it. I would recommend to take 3-4 hours to walk trough everything without hurrying. The only negative thing is that they don’t offer guided tour in English. You can borrow the headphones with audio & video guide which is great and really helpful but the guided tour would probably be better option.
Audio description is great, comes in Spanish, English, Italian, French and other Languages. Lots of steps but good experience. A few areas had items removed for study, which was a shame but understandable. New exhibition is not great - probably only really a 10m view, and the audio poems was a bit much for us. Main museum was great, especially the Tomb of Kings (ground floor)
