State Museum of Egyptian Art

The Staatliches Museum Ägyptischer Kunst (State Museum of Egyptian Art) in Munich is the Bavarian State Collection for Ancient Egypt art. It displays exhibits from all periods of Ancient Egypt's history. 

The associated small Middle East section displays objects from the areas of Assyrian and Babylonian culture. As of 2012 the Egyptian museum is located in the Residenz, but it will be moved to the Kunstareal in 2013.

The museum displays Ancient Egyptian artifacts, such as statues, sculptures, cult articles, papyri, stone tablets with hieroglyphics, glasswares, jewellery, amulets but also mummies, textiles and household goods.
Among the most distinguished exhibits are the famous duplex statue portraiting the pharaoh Nyuserre Ini as young and as elder man, the statues of the pharaohs Amenemhat III, Ramses II, Thutmosis III and Akhenaten, the sphinx of Sesostris III and of Amenhotep II, the sarcophagus lid of queen Sitdjehuti and the kneeling figure of Senenmut. The Hellenistic-roman period is represented by master pieces such as the bust of a Seleucid ruler and the grand Egyptian statue of Antinous.

Very precious is the treasure of jewellery of the Nubian Queen Amanishakheto.
 
The museum owns also the Assyrian Orthostat reliefs from the palace of king Ashur-nasir-pal II and a lion from the Ishtar Gate of Babylon which were once displayed in the Glyptothek.
