Full description

Meet your guide and enter the building with a skip-the-line ticket. Explore the exhibitions dedicated exclusively to ancient Egyptian culture and art. Take a journey through time as the displays show items in chronological order, from the 4th-century BC to the 3rd-century AD.

Together with your guide, discover the mysterious and magical side of the Egyptian Empire on this gripping tour. See the spectacular Tomb of Kha, a tomb builder to the pharaohs, which dates to 3,500 BC.

Admire the sarcophagi, statues, sundries, and furniture, as well as astonishingly well-preserved items such as salted meat and a pottery bowl with the remains of tamarind and grapes. Next, head to the Drovetti Collection of papyrus sheets, which is considered by some as the most important in the world.

Finally, visit the Ellesija Temple, a rock-hewn temple that is more than 3,500-years-old. Learn about how the temple was built for Pharaoh Tuthmosis III and was saved from Nile flooding before it was moved to Italy in 1966.

During the visit, feel free to take a break at the museum cafeteria and at the end don't forget to stop at the marvelous souvenir shop.

La guida Francesca si è distinta per la pazienza, la professionalità e capacità di farci percepire quanti millenni di storia abbracci il museo egizio ed il perché della unicità di certi reperti...ne vale veramente la pena. Dario e Francesca da Livorno

Francesco, la nostra guida, è stato molto gentile e disponibile. Le sue spiegazioni chiare e comprensibili e per nulla noiose anche per i nostri figli di 10 e 13 anni. Grazie a lui ci è sembrato di vivere per due ore nell’Antico Egitto. Per noi è stata la prima volta al museo Egiziano e ne siamo usciti entusiasta

Esperienza bellissima! Il museo è fantastico e Grazia, la nostra guida, è molto preparata ed è riuscita a spiegarlo molto bene! Inoltre il limitato numero di persone presenti nel gruppo ha favorito la perfetta riuscita della visita! La consiglio sicuramente!
