I'm looking for a book or other resource which lists the objects in the Egyptian Museum of Cairo. Preferably with pictures. Does any such thing exist?

Similar resource for the Egyptian Museum of Berlin would be appreciated too.

I wish more museums had their collection digitized and make it freely searchable online like the British Museum has done.

First the classics (maybe more later, because I need some time for that, but there is to say that there is no catalogue published which lists all the objects):

Catalogue général des antiquités égyptiennes du Musée du Caire

Probably the best-selling, as guide for a visit ...

Ägyptisches Museum Kairo. - [The Illustrated Guide to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo - National Geographic Art Guide] - [Ed. Alessandro Bongioanni / Alessia Amenta]. - Hamburg : National Geographic Deutschland, 2002. - ISBN : 3-934385-81-8. - 631 p. This one is edited in different languages.

Greetings, Lutz.

Also for the Berlin Museum there is still no complete catalogue published. Not publicly available (available for scientific research / studies), there is a card catalog. However, the creation and publication of a printed catalog should now be the next mission after the merge of the collections from East and West Berlin and two relocations of the collection.

Until then there is ...
