Egyptian Museum of the University of Leipzig

Short facts

The exhibition in the Krochhochhaus presents a complete overview of four thousand years of ancient Egyptian culture with around 7,000 objects. These are originals of various kinds such as statues, reliefs, coffins, statuettes of the dead (shabti), stone and clay vessels.

One of the most important exhibits in the museum is the coffin of Hedbastiru (approx. 500 - 300 BC), which was purchased by Gustav Seyffarth for the university in 1843 and is also the first piece in the large collection.
