Our two-hour tour will reveal the fascination of Turin's most famous museum.
The tour with your personal guide will start from the underground floor, where the guide will shed light on the museum's history. Here you can also see the wonderful famous Papyrus of Iuenfakh, which bears the Book of the Dead.
As the name suggests, books of the dead in Ancient Egypt were funerary texts.
They were mainly used from the New Kingdom until the mid 1st century BC. The original title Ru ne pere em heru translates as Book for coming forth by day. The collection of texts contained magical formulas to access the deceased in the afterlife.
Your licensed guide will take you to see the papyrus of Iuenfakh at the Egyptian Museum of Turin and explain why it is so important.

The tour continues to the second floor, reached by escalator, bringing you to the museum's most important collection.
On this floor, your guide will show an extremely ancient mummy of an adult male dating far back, to 3500 BC.
In these early burials, the deceased was placed in a fetal position in a large, concave hole.
Continuing the tour through these rooms, you'll get to see the Painted Canvas of Gebelein; one of the oldest examples of painting on canvas ever found. The Statue of Redit is in the next room, dating to the second half of the 3rd century BC. and depicting a royal princess, or, more exactly, her ka, the life force of a dead person.
Perhaps the most important piece on the second floor of the Egyptian Museum is the Tomb of the Unknown, whose uniqueness your guide will explain. The full grave goods of the tomb owners are here though we don't know their names. The same room includes partial grave goods from another tomb from the Old Kingdom: the tomb of Ifi and Neferu.
In the last rooms on the second floor are objects from the Middle and New Kingdoms: the Statue of Uahka and the Erotic Papyrus.

The tour continues down to the first floor of the Egyptian Museum. Here the artifacts from the late Old Kingdom are found as well as some found at the Deir el Medina site.
Your guide will show you some important decorated wooden sarcophagi dating from between 1100 BC and 600 BC, mainly from the late Old Kingdom era.
Grave goods of Kha's tomb from the archaeological site of Deir el Medina are also here. This important figure is thought to have been an architect serving Pharaoh Amenhotep III. Its discovery and display gave the Egyptian Museum of Turin the chance to display the grave goods of a wealthy court figure. The most important items in the collection are beds, chairs, caskets, and jars for ointments and food still intact as if 3,400 years ago were yesterday.

Your exclusive guided tour into the world of ancient Egypt will end on the ground floor.
This floor, as your guide will explain, includes the Kings' Gallery, the Ellesya Temple, and the Nubian Rooms. In the Kings' Gallery, you can admire statues of many famous Egyptian kings in different sizes and materials. First is the sandstone statue of Ramesses II, which the French archaeologist Champollion called the Belvedere Apollo of Egyptian art. Next tour, you'll see the Ellesya Temple. This rock temple was built by Emperor Thutmosi III near Abu Simbel in Nubia (present-day Ethiopia). Its interior decorations date to different historical periods, and it has Christian symbols, too, such as the five-point star. The Egyptian government donated this temple to thank Italian engineers for their help on the great Aswam dam, as their expertise saved Egyptian temples from flooding.
The Egyptian Museum in Turin is a point of excellence among international archaeological museums and draws a growing number of visitors fascinated by Egyptian culture. This culture has long fascinated everyone who comes upon a papyrus, pyramid, sarcophagus, and any of the other countless artifacts that have survived to our day. This culture has come to us across many centuries and given us a peek at an advanced people that is still mysterious.

This tour is highly recommended for families with children and for school visits.
The beautiful monuments that ancient Egyptians built are universally recognized, just as the names of the most important Pharaohs are well-known to the general public, such as, Rameses II whose temples made Egypt an open-air museum. The Egyptian Museum tour lets children and young people experience this magical era led by an expert guide to understand the mystery behind their rituals.
