About the tour

A different tour, there may not be one in the world like this!

Through original material of that time, I will guide you on "the beginnings of Egyptology." Everything was born as a result of a fantastic adventure, the expedition of Napoleon Bonaparte to Egypt made between 1798-1801 and above all, by the great "guilty", great "savants" (scientists) who accompanied him...

We will transport you to France and Egypt by the engravings made by these great artists. In addition, you can also see the first albums of the first adventurers who, following the discovery of photography and "camera in hand", are going to portray "faithfully" those vestiges previously drawn by the artists. And as a climax, you will be able to see original advertising material on how the publicists influenced the relationship with Egypt in the twentieth century.

The tour is made up of an initial explanation of about 30 minutes, and then you see part of the collection material with explanations that will last about 2 hours.
