Historical Palatinate Museum in Speyer shows unique findings.

In the exhibition "Discover Egypt's treasures. Masterpieces from the Turin Egyptian Museum", the Historical Palatinate Museum in Speyer is presenting one of the most significant collections of ancient Egyptian relics from 11 March to 2 September 2012. More than 100 originals of inestimable value have been incorporated in an elaborate presentation to take visitors to the fascinating world of this advanced civilisation.


The outstanding exhibits include the statue of Pharaoh Tuthmosis I, which is around 3,000 years old, the spectacular coffins of the Ancient Egyptian scribe Butehamun and the almost completely intact find complex from Minhotep's grave. The presentation is rounded off with impressive sculptures of mighty pharaohs and priests, superb graphic characters and mysterious mummies and simple articles of everyday use which have survived more than 3,000 years almost undamaged.

For the first time ever the results of current research and valuable Egyptian Museum collection items from previous excavations are being shown together.

A comprehensive support programme with guided tours, talks and workshops rounds off the offer.
