EGYPTIAN MUSEUM - Turin

EGYPTIAN MUSEUM - Turin

The Egyptian Museum of Turin is the most important Egyptian museum in the world after the one in Cairo. Carlo Felice founded the museum in 1824 after he acquired the collection of Bernardino Drovetti, the French consul in Egypt. At the beginning of the 1900's, the museum director Ernesto Schiapparelli not only acquired important objects from other collections, but he also ran various excavations in Egypt which resulted in 17,000 new finds. Today in the museum a total of 30,000 ancient objects are kept, some of which are one-of-a-kind, such as the stone temple to Ellesija (rebuilt stone by stone), the statue of Ramses II, and the funeral chest of Kha e Merit.
