The Egyptian Museum of Barcelona
The Barcelona Egyptian Museum is one of Europe’s foremost private collections of Egyptian art and culture, and an organisation committed to research and the study and dissemination of Ancient Egypt.
The Barcelona Egyptian Museum is located at Calle Valencia, in the Eixample district, very close to the Paseo de Gracia and La Pedrera. It has a monographic collection on Ancient Egypt that is one of the best in Europe. It has around one thousand exhibits on show that give a good idea of the life and customs of one of Egypt’s most ancient civilizations.
The Museum has over 2,000 square meters distributed in three main exhibition areas. One of them holds temporary exhibitions; lecture rooms and a library. It also has a shop and offers the assistance of museum guides.
The Egyptian Museum of Barcelona has structured its exhibition areas around ten main topics that represent, in general lines, essential aspects of the Pharaonic civilization.
The Museu Egipci de Barcelona runs guided tours of its collections led by Egyptologists, which are essential in order to give visitors a greater understanding and knowledge of Egyptian culture and civilization.
In addition to the permanent collections and the temporary exhibitions, the museum also organizes other activities which enable visitors to enjoy the collections in an entertaining, fun way. These activities include night-time guided tours featuring re-enactments of scenes by actors. Another is the Eternal Banquet, a guided tour centering on Egyptian cuisine which gives visitors the opportunity to taste products that were part of the diet of this ancient civilization. Thanks to the excellent response of thousands of visitors, the Museum continues to grow, both in terms of the number of pieces on exhibit and in terms of the Museum itself.
