Egyptian Museum (Museo Egizio)

The Egyptian Museum is devoted solely to Egyptian art, and in fact contains the largest collection of such art outside of the Cairo Museum.  It was founded in 1824 with the acquisition by King Carlo Felice of a collection of 5,268 objects gathered by Bernardino Drovetti.

The museum is a 17th century palace, originally a Jesuit school built by the architect Guarino Guarini.
