Egyptian Art Museum

  Residenzstr. (entrance from Hofgarten)      +49 89 29 85 46     more than a year ago
It's not the Met in New York, but a diverse selection of pieces from the early, middle and late kingdoms are all represented in some form in this museum. Read a well-preserved papyrus copy of the Book of the Dead or letters written to Pharaoh Amenophis IV on rock tablets. Look at Coptic art, mummy portraits from the Roman period or sarcophagi from various epochs. The truly outrageous erotic art illustrates the ancient Egyptian penchant for exaggeration.
