The “Museu Egipci de Barcelona” runs guided tours of its collections led by Egyptologists, which are essential in order to give visitors a greater knowledge of Egyptian culture and civilisation. More than 2.000 square metres of gallery space showcase almost one thousand exhibits, including sarcophagi, mummies, jewellery and amulets, to give you a greater understanding of everyday life and prevailing customs of the ancient civilisation of the Pharaohs.
In addition to permanent collections and temporary exhibitions, the museum also organizes other activities which enable visitors to enjoy the collections in an entertaining, fun way.

Another activity 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.
