From the website:

At a rough estimate, over 2 million objects from ancient Egypt are kept in about 850 public collections, dispersed over 69 countries around the world.

This website aims to collect them into a global virtual museum which can be visited at any time from any place.

The Global Egyptian Museum is a long-term project, carried out under the aegis of the International Committee for Egyptology (CIPEG).

The Basic Mode, currently showcasing 1340 highlights, is geared to the interested public.

glossary of more than 400 items explains Egyptian terms and themes.

Many objects are provided with audio comments and 3D movies.

The Advanced Mode, equipped with a powerful search and data entry engine, opens up the full database — presently 14975 objects — to professionals and amateurs.


Fair warning: there goes the day.
