This tour provides an overview of the Metropolitan's collection of Egyptian art, one of the finest and most comprehensive outside Egypt. Among the highlights is the Temple of Dendur. Thanks to its Egyptian excavations, the Museum is particularly rich in both royal and private art of the Middle Kingdom and early New Kingdom, and in funerary art of the Late Period. Virtually all of the objects in the collection are on view in the main galleries and numerous smaller study galleries.
