"Rare Egyptian Artifacts on Display"

Counted as one of the most prolific collections of the country, Museo Egizio in Turin is a treasure trove of ancient Egyptian archaeological items. It features the most expansive displays of Egyptian artifacts, with over 30,000 historical items on display. Established in the year 1824, it was set up at a time when preserving rare Egyptian curiosities was at its helm in the 19th Century. In 1824, Sardinia's King Charles Felix consolidated the acquisitions of Vitaliano Donati and Paduan Egyptologist with the House of Savoy. Museo Egizio's various object chronicle centuries of routine life, religion and art during the era of the Pharaohs. Some notable exhibits include the tomb of Kha, book of death, black sculpture of Ramses II and Ellesiya's rocky temple. Such riveting are the museum's displays, that they have interested some of the most celebrated historians, including the likes of the inventor of the iconic Rosetta Stone, Jean-François Champollion.
