Since November 5th 2020 the Museo Egizio is closed to the public, to help fighting the Covid-19 pandemic. However, the museum keeps working, behind closed doors, as we carry on the researches on our collection, as well as our activities online to share a heritage that belongs to humanity. Every day we publish new content to maintain a fruitful dialogue with our audience as well as with the international scientific community.

Here is a list of online contents that are available for everyone:

The Director's Walks
Virtual guided tours in the rooms of the museum accompanied by the Director Christian Greco. Just click HERE to watch all episodes.


Temporary exhibition “Archeologia Invisibile” (Invisibile Archaeology)
The virtual tour is available HERE.
The purpose of the temporary exhibition is to illustrate the principles, tools, examples and results of the meticulous work of recomposition of information, data and knowledge made possible today by the application of science and technology from other disciplines to the study of the archaeological findings from the Turin based collection.
The virtual tour is a powerful immersive tool, developed by two students of the course in Cinema and media engineering of the Polytechnic of Turin in collaboration with the filmmaker studio Robin Studio, who, using 360° cameras, have created a 3D faithful reproduction of the exhibition. Thanks to the virtual tour it is possible to explore the exhibition rooms, "browsing" all the elements, watching the videos and perusing the individual finds.
Lastly, the topics of the exhibition can also be explored in the "Archeologia Invisibile" playlist on YouTubeThe videos present interviews with the researchers who collaborated in the exhibition and reveal how archaeometrics makes it possible to learn more and more about the biography of the objects.
