Discover the oldest Egyptian Museum in the world


We'll meet at the museum's entrance. The Museum is the oldest Egyptian museum in the world. Founded in 1824 by King Carlo Felice after acquiring the collection of the archaeologist Drovetti, the museum contains 30. 000 exhibits. It documents the history and civilization of Egypt from the Palaeolithic to the Coptic era through unique exhibits and collections of articles of daily use and funeral furnishings (including the pre-dynastic painted canvas painted from Gebelein, the intact tombs of Kha and Merit, and the exceptional cliff temple of Ellesjia). The tour will culminate with the Gallery of the Kings to admire the statue of Ramses II.
Please note that the museum is closed on Monday afternoons.
