The Egyptian and Near Eastern Department of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien is one of the most important collections of Egyptian antiquities in the whole world. This large collection with its showrooms decorated with Egyptianizing wallpaper – produced originally for the World Exposition 1892 – and Egyptian columns, re-used in the room's architecture, is in itself a striking example of the cultural reception of Ancient Egypt in Europe.
