  • When we told people we were going to Torino, everyone talked excitedly about the Egyptian Museum, and for good reason — it is truly a wealth of Eyptian artifacts! I was genuinely awed several times throughout. There are mummies aplenty and beautiful sarcophagi to admire. They have many things to wow you, but the most impressive to me was that they had an actual ancient Egyptian temple inside. It was given by Egypt in appreciation for Italy’s archaeological help. Truly impressive. We did a guided 2 hour tour, which skipped some things, so I could have easily spent more time. I’d say 3+ hours minimum if you want to really absorb everything.
  • This museum has great collection. If you're interested in Egyptology, the place serves you well. They have guided tours in English and Italian languages, and it's worth opting for one. Please make sure to book online about 2 weeks in advance to make sure you have slots available for the day of visit. Usually the queues are long and the tickets at the counter are sold out quickly.
