Cod. EG00408   Cod. EG00424
  The Museo delle Antichità Egizie, was the first museum dedicated solely to Egyptian archaeology and anthropology. It is home to what is regarded as one of the largest collections of Egyptian antiquities outside of Egypt.

Many academics of international repute devoted themselves to its collections, thus confirming what the decipherer of Egyptian hieroglyphs, Jean-François Champollion, wrote: "The road to Memphis and Thebes passes from Turin".

Cod. EG00430
The Fondazione Museo delle Antichità Egizie di Torino, set up on 6 October 2004, is the Italian State’s first experiment of a museum whose management is open to private capital.

In the renovated museum, Academy Award winner Dante Ferretti has used light to reveal the very essence of the statues, capturing the spirit of each one and highlighting the differences between them.
