The Egyptian Museum of Barcelona

The Egyptian Museum of Barcelona in Barcelona

The Egyptian Museum of Barcelona houses more than 350 exhibits, which represents almost every cultural period and most of the different categories of objects from Ancient Egypt. The main hall contains the most emblematic items from an aesthetic point of view, such as the bust of the goddess Ileona Sacmis, the funeral stela of the scribe Sebekemheb, the sarcophagi, etc. On the lower floor the exhibits are arranged in-groups according to subject matter: amulets, crockery, sacred figures, terracotta figures, three animal mummies... Finally, on the upper floor, we find, amongst other figures, an exact replica of the Rosetta stone, a vital element in the decipherment of hieroglyphic writing.
