Egyptian Museum (Museu Egipci) Tours

1 review
Though Egypt may not come to mind when you think of Barcelona, think again, as the city’s Egyptian Museum displays an impressive collection of some 1,000 ancient artifacts from the African country. The pieces once belonged to the museum’s founder, Catalan Jordi Clos, and are now on display in the intimate and relatively crowd-free galleries found just off the main drag of Passeig de Gracia.

The diverse permanent collection spans everything from ceramics to jewelry, mummies, and a host of items related to the culture and funeral practices. Meanwhile, rotating exhibitions offer other themed looks into Egypt’s distant past. Cap off your visit with a snack at the outdoor terrace and a visit the museum’s Egypt-inspired store.

Practical Info

The Egyptian Museum is situated just steps away from popular Passeig de Gracia sights such as La Pedrera and Casa Batllo, and is also close to the hop-on hop-off bus tour stop Gràcia. Note that during several off-season months the museum closes between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on weekdays.
