The Fundació Arqueològica Clos - Museu Egipci de Barcelona is one of Europe's foremost private collections of Egyptian art and culture, and an organisation committed to research and the study and dissemination of Ancient Egypt.
More than 2,000 m2
of gallery space showcase almost one thousand exhibits, including sarcophagi, mummies, jewellery and amulets, to give us a greater understanding of everyday life and the prevailing customs of the ancient civilisation of the Pharaohs.
The Museu Egipci de Barcelona
runs guided tours of its collections led by Egyptologists, which are essential in order to give visitors a greater understanding and knowledge of Egyptian culture and civilisation.
In addition to the permanent collections and the temporary exhibitions, the museum also organises other activities which enable visitors to enjoy the collections in an entertaining, fun way. These activities include night-time guided tours
featuring re-enactments of scenes by actors. Another of the activities is the Eternal Banquet
, a guided tour centring on Egyptian cuisine
which gives visitors the opportunity to taste products that were part of the diet of this ancient civilisation. Temporary exhibitions
