In the context of the progressive digitization of built heritage, this contribution illustrates the methods, techniques, and tools adopted for the development of a Heritage BIM (H-BIM) model of the building of the Collegio dei Nobili which, since 1824, has hosted the collections of the Egyptian Museum of Turin.

The project that has been developed in the broader framework of the digital transition of the Fondazione Museo delle Antichità Egizie di Torino, illustrates the work of survey and representation of the internal and external spaces of the Museum. Through the complexity of the case study, the article describes the workflows adopted to solve the different critical issues faced for representation and 3D modeling in a BIM environment.

The methodology and the workflow adopted provide a valid contribution to the digitization of museum environments located inside a historic building.
