Exposition "Un jour, j'achetai une momie"

Un jour, j'achetai une momie... One day I bought a Mummy


From the 30th of March to the 2nd of July 2012, at the Lyon Museum of Fine Arts.

Emile Guimet and Ancient Egypt
Or how Emile Guimet's incredible dream came true…

Emile Guimet, a young industrialist from Lyon fascinated by archaeology and passionate about history, sets off to visit Egypt in 1865…

And nothing will ever be the same again… He was captivated by the civilisation and mysteries of Ancient Egypt.

He purchased numerous rare and unusual objects from the Nile valley and criss-crossed the East until he had amassed one of the most impressive private collections of oriental objects of his time.

And now it's your turn to leap back in time to the period of Osiris, the pyramids and the sarcophagi…
And to fall under their spell…

This pharaonic exhibition is not to be missed!

Admission to the museum and exhibition is free of charge with the Lyon City card
