The original National Archaeological Museum, which was housed in the same area as the "Cenacolo di Foligno" in via Faenza, was inaugurated by King Vittorio Emanuele II on March 12, 1871.
The National Archaeological Museum of Florence housed in the Palazzo della Crocetta contains one of the most complete collections of Italian archeology. Divided into various thematic areas, it gives the opportunity to admire an impressive Egyptian collection composed of sarcophagi, sculptures and hieroglyphics as well as a vast variety of objects and tools from the everyday life of the ancient Egyptian people.

Enjoy your time exploring the past at the National Archaeological Museum of Florence!
