Egyptian Archaeological Museum of Milan

Egyptian Archaeological Museum of Milan

The Egyptian Archaeological Museum of Milan is located in the basement of the Ducal Court of the Castello Sforzesco in Milan . The collection has experienced a rapid increase over the years thanks to continuous donations from small and medium-sized private collections.

During the Second World War the Castle's exhibitions were dismantled and the materials placed in the warehouses. Only in 1965 the archaeological collections were moved from the Castle to the current location in Corso Magenta (Civic Archaeological Museum).

The installation by Cesare Volpiano included the exhibition in two rooms, the first relating to the funerary cult, the second to daily life, religion and art of ancient Egypt. In the following forty years, continuous donations from private individuals as well as targeted acquisitions, led to a further increase in the Egyptian collection in Milan, which today includes about 3,000 exhibits.

The Egyptian section of the Civic Archaeological Museum is temporarily closed for the renewal of the exhibition and for works intended to overcome architectural barriers. The collections are exhibited in rotation at the Civic Archaeological Museum in Corso Magenta.
