The Egyption Museum was one of my favorite stops in Turin! Not only is it a very large collection of artifacts, there's a wealth of information. The museum provides a headset for audio tour with the purchase of a ticket. I recommend bringing headphones as they are not included and otherwise the device needs to be held to your ear. I also recommend giving yourself about 3 hours to see the entire museum in depth.
Maintained Properly... You will get Temporary headset and phone for listening to History. No proper symbol available for listening to Audios. To be improved on this section. Lot of places 🎧 symbol is not available. 3 Hours you can spend and entrance fees is 15euro per person.
