Museo Archeologico Egizio di Milano

The Museum

Egyptian collection Milan, located in the Ducal Court basement of the Castello Sforzesco in Milan, experienced a rapid increase in the coming decades  through continual small donations and medium-sized private collections. During the Second World War exposures of the Castle were dismantled and the materials deposited in the warehouses. Only  in 1965 the archaeological collections were moved from the Castle in’ current premises in Corso Magenta. L’ fitting  Caesar Volpiano  provided the’ exposure two rooms , before on the funeral cult , second to daily life , religion and all’ art of’ ancient Egypt .  in the forty’ years, continuous donations from individuals as well asé targeted acquisitions, have led to further increase the Milanese Egyptian collection, which now numbers about 3,000 exhibits.
