A visit to Egyptian Museum of Barcelona


I visited the museum in Barcelona-Spain on 24th October 2018. The museum allows Egyptians to enter for free. But this was a private tour part of a conference I was invited to as a keynote speaker (3rd International Conference on Pharmacy and Medicine in Ancient Egypt)

The museum is small: a hall and a mezzanine floor; yet loaded with nice artefacts.

  • Positions and characters
  • The Pharaoh
  • Jewellery
  • Stone and earthenware
  • Cosmetics and eroticism
  • Funerary beliefs and practices
  • Funeral facilities
  • The chapel for rituals
  • Worship in temples
  • Gods of Egypt
