Education and outreach
The Egyptian Museum presents all the realms of ancient Egyptian life. Visitors can find out more about the lives of the pharaohs and the belief in the afterlife, examine hieratic writing, behold the beauty of Nefertiti, and delve into the world of the gods and the world of everyday life in ancient Egypt.
Audio guides, guided tours, workshops, and other activities can accompany visitors through their exploration of 4,000 years of Egyptian culture. The museum also offers private guided tours. In booking your appointment, you can select a time as well as a topic that interests you.
Children can learn to decipher the oldest writing in the world and can even try writing their own names in hieroglyphs on real papyrus. They can travel through the Egyptian Realm of the Dead, paint their faces like Nefertiti, or find out more about her husband, the ruler Akhenaten. A multimedia guide made just for children makes the journey into the past even more exciting!
The Ägyptisches Museum und Papyrussammlung showcases its unique objects at the Neues Museum on the Museumsinsel Berlin.
