From Egypt to the Eixample

A visit to the museum is a journey through the history of this ancient civilisation and enables you to see some imposing works, including a statue of Ramesses III, mummies and hundreds of other items: jewellery, funeral steles, domestic utensils, portraits and so on. Thanks to the Clos Archaeological Foundation, the museum also publishes material and offers a master’s in Egyptology, as well as organising temporary exhibitions, children’s activities, research projects and even expeditions to Egypt.

Fascination with Egypt

The origin and history of the museum is closely linked to Jordi Clos Llombart, the chairman of a major hotel chain with a passion for Egypt. The starting point was an exhibition he organised in one of his hotels in 1992. It was so well received by the general public that he decided to establish the Egyptian Museum of Barcelona a couple of years later. Subsequently, the increase in the size of the collection and the number of visitors allowed it to move to its current home on Carrer de València, in 1992. Since then, the collection, the number of visitors and the museum itself have not stopped growing.
