Egypt in Ontario

Egyptomania is all around Ontario, from artefacts hidden in small museums around the province, to obelisks standing proud in many cemeteries. We have written on the Royal Ontario Museum’s Egyptian collection, and Egyptianising elements in Museum Station, the Lillian Massey Building, and St. James Cemetery. We will continue to add to our below map as we explore the places you can encounter ancient Egypt in Ontario.



  • Orange = Museums with an Egyptian collection
  • Blue = Buildings with Egyptianising elements
  • Black = Egyptianising Monuments
