In addition to our guided tours, we also offer a series of workshopsworkshops expanding upon the subjects of the tours.
When coming with large classes (more than 20 students), we ask that you divide the class into two groups and book two tours: that way, the children can see the smaller objects better, encouraging concentration and interest and stimulating the dialogue between the tour guide and the students. Since our tours follow a predetermined circuit, both groups will receive the same information and all participants will have seen the same objects.
If you have booked a workshop with your tours, the class will be re-united for the workshop.
The following list is our standard catalogue of tours; we can offer various specific themes (e.g. for vocational or professional schools) on demand. Tours for children from integration classes, schools for the handicapped or curative education are also available; please be sure to discuss the content of the tour when booking. Unless otherwise noted, all tours last one hour (60 minutes). All tours are also available in the following languages: English, French, Spanish, Italian, Arabic and Hungarian; please book well in advance and make sure you have alternate dates, as availability depends on the schedules of our foreign-language guides.

This workshop is three hours long and merges practical activities with a theoretical background. A guided tour in the museum explains the basics of the hieroglyphic writing system as well as the scribal profession; in the scribal “school” the students follow in the footsteps of Jean-François Champollion, the decipherer of the hieroglyphs, try their own hand at writing hieroglyphs, discover various writing materials such as ostraca (limestone chips) and papyrus, make their own ink and write their “master piece” with a reed pen. At the end of the programme, they can craft a folder to hold their artwork.
Costs: 130 € for no more than 30 children.
Duration: 3 hours including a 15-minute break.
