  • The best Egyptian Museum that I have seen so far! Do yourself a favour and visit this museum in Turin.  more »
  • 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 »

  • 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)
