Museum Ägyptischer Kunst München Welcome to the Egyptian Museum in Munich!

Skip navigation and go straight to the information
The State Museum of Egyptian Art, though by far not one of the largest collections of Ancient Egyptian artefacts, has attained worldwide renown for the quality of its pieces, particularly in the area of sculpture. Many of the objects on display are internationally recognized masterpieces and are much solicited as loans for temporary exhibitions around the world.

Rather than presenting a baffling array of rooms stuffed to the brim with Egyptian artwork, all within an even larger complex, the Munich museum offers respite from sensory overload with a more compact exhibition. Visitors can leave with a clearer understanding of the 5000 years of art and culture that make up Egypt’s fascinating history, and all within a more manageable time frame.

Closed on Mondays (except Easter and Pentecost Mondays)
