Torino's Egyptian Museum is the second in the world, just after Cairo's one. It is situated in the very centre of the town, in Via Accademia delle Scienze, next to Piazza Castello. Surely to be seen. I use to go at least a couple of times a year and I always find it amazing and fascinating! Besides all the "ordinary" objects, papyri, jewellery and mummies displayed, often they put on extraordinary exhibitions in collaboration with other museums. I particularly remember one about the Princess Nefertiti. Simply wonderful. The new top manager is a woman very skilled and clever and she is working hard, and successfully, to bring the Museum to its best.
