Location: 2nd floor, Great Hall
This is the first exhibition of ancient Egyptian art in Estonia. The display includes archaeological findings that are thousands of years old and that belong to one of the most voluminous ancient Egyptian art collections in the world: the Museo Egizio in Italy. The extremely varied display, consisting of 200 original items, offers the viewer insight into the country of pharaohs and the daily life of Egyptians, in which art was the connecting link between earthly existence and the afterlife. Ancient Egyptian treasures will simultaneously be displayed at the Amos Rex art museum in Helsinki. Egypt of Glory is a grand parallel exhibition with independent yet complementary subdivisions in Tallinn and Helsinki.
The exhibition takes place in cooperation with the Museo Egizio.
