Amos Rex, Art Museum of Estonia, and Museo Egizio showed a unique two part exhibition on Antique Egyptian Art.

Opened in October 2020, an exhibition titled Egypt of Glory was shown in two parallel locations – at Amos Rex, Helsinki, and at the Art Museum of Estonia’s Kumu Art Museum, Tallinn.

The rare two-part exhibition was based on one of the most important collections of Ancient Egyptian art and culture outside Egypt – the collection of Museo Egizio in Turin, Italy.

Egypt of Glory featured over 500 exhibits from the Museo Egizio which told the long history of Egyptian civilization, from its origins to the Ptolemaic Period. Time and Art constituted a common thread that accompanied visitors to discover the Egypt of the first millennium.

The exhibition showed what the newest technologies can bring into an exhibition about Ancient Egypt.
