The Museo Egizio (Italian pronunciation: [muˈzɛːo eˈdʒittsjo]) or Egyptian Museum is a museum sited in the Sforza Castle of Milan, Italy. The Castle is one of the most famous monuments in Milan and is home to several museums including the Egyptian Section of the Milan Archaeological Museum, the Museum of Ancient Art, the Pinacoteca and the Museum of Musical Instruments.

The Egyptian Museum, situated in the underground level of the ducal courtyard, is divided into seven different sections:

  • ABOUT ANCIENT EGYPTIAN WRITING
  • ABOUT PHARAOHS
  • ABOUT DEITIES AND CULTS
  • ABOUT EVERYDAY LIFE FOR THE EGYPTIANS
  • ABOUT FUNERARY CULT
  • EXCAVATIONS CONDUCTED BY ACHILLE VOGLIANO
  • MUMMIES, SARCOPHAGI AND FUNERARY MASKS

A mummy dating from the Greco-Roman period, from Thebes, and ancient Egyptian sarcophagi are exposed in the "mummies, sarcophagi and funerary mask" section, while some papyri of the Book of the Dead are exposed in the Funerary Cult section.
