The extensive exhibition on ancient Egypt will take you on a journey back in time thousands of years to the Egypt of pharaohs. The exhibition is displayed in two places at once: at Protected content . The unique, two-part exhibition is based on the Museo Egizio’s collection, the largest collection on Egyptian art and culture outside of Egypt.

At Protected content , you get to explore the annual cycle, worldview, religion and state structure of ancient Egyptians, along with their everyday items. The exhibition includes, for example, ancient sandals, old tax receipts and Books of the Dead. Each item in the exhibition carries a unique story. The rich culture uncovered through archaeological excavations is still present in our everyday lives: for example, the Protected content calendar and its division of the year into 12 months, was used already in ancient Egypt. It’s no wonder then that the glory of Egypt continues to shine, even after thousands of years.

Please bring a mask and cancel your attendance if you cannot make it. Thank you!
