The Egizio Museum in Turin is the only museum in the world, apart from the Cairo Museum, which is dedicated exclusively to Egyptian art and culture. The first Egyptian object that came to Turin was bought by the king of the House of Savoy Carlo Emanuele I in 1630 and was the Mensa Isiaca. The Regio Museo delle Antichità Egizie was formally founded in 1824 with the acquisition of a collection by King Carlo Felice. This collection was added and moved to different buildings over the years and finally became the Egizio Museum. Click the next ARROW to see the next photo!
