This impressive museum really takes visitors into the world of ancient Egypt. The Egyptian Museum (as it is known in Italy), is housed in a baroque building of great historical character. There is an impressive collection of Egyptian antiquities as it is the second largest museum of Egyptian history following the one in Cairo. The museum displays a large quantity and variety of mummies in very good condition which is the main attraction of the museum. It also has large sculptures of mythological figures and famous pharaohs. This is definitely a must see - especially if you you´re knowledgable about Egypt or are interested in its history and culture.
