Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum: Egypt Exhibit

Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum Egypt Exhibit東京都美術館トリノ・エジプト展覧会

The Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, in Tokyo's Ueno Park, is now exhibiting many pieces from Turin, Italy, called "Ancient Egypt in Torino."

The Museum is a ten-minute walk from Ueno Station and opens at 9 am.

The exhibit lasts until October 4th, and is very popular.

One the day I went, a large tour group from the provinces was swarming around every piece of jewelry, stone, or mummy. At times, it was three-deep.

Still, it is a wonderful - and wonderfully arranged - exhibit.

Go early and enjoy it.

  1. Thanks for this - I was planning a trip to Yokohama for the Sunken Treasures exhibit now I can combine these for a day of Egyptology in Tokyo!
