Digital Museum

The Egyptian Museum pioneers many aspects of digital museum education. Throughout the exhibition, you will discover media stations on the subject of our main thematic rooms while our MediaGuide will play multimedia tour guide with interesting audio and visual information on individual objects.

But there are also a number of other opportunities to discover Ancient Egypt outside of your museum visit.
