A lot of ancient heritages are here. Great museum. We can trace all the way back to the beginning of ancient Egypt. Well organized.

Very interesting but no aircon makes it a bit heavy going. Fantastic display of all Tutankhamens treasures made the visit worthwhile. Expect to have your camera taken off you at the entrance as no photos allowed inside. Why??? also expect to be asked for tip when using the toilet and needing toilet paper!

Was beautiful artifacts to see. Tour guide explained so much in detail. To see all the treasures mummy's and history was just amazing. Definitely something you should try to do if you get the chance. We went in August and I have to say I have never been as hot as I was in the Cairo museum. Wear something light... More

Beware there is little air conditioning, cannot take cameras in, it is very busy with tour guides shouting over each other, staff moving displays about can be a little grim but ignore this. Go to the royal mummies room the extra charge is worth paying, the fe e covers 2 rooms no where near each other so ask for directions... More

You could probably spend a month in here and not see everything much less learn about every item on exhibit. This is an amazing place to learn about life in ancient times and to see the artistry and innovation of the past. Definitely a place to have a guide so book a tour and if you are interested in a...

This one deserves atleast one visit. You will love it. It gives you a great insight into the ancient Egyptian history. You can also see ancient jewellery made of gold and silver.

One of the best museums in the world! The artifacts are breathtaking. The reasons that I couldn't give it 5 stars- no air conditioning. Luckily the museum was not that crowded. There was no line to get in to the Tutankhamen exhibits. There are so many, many artifacts and such a small amount on display, that there are crates all... More

One of the most important Museums in the world. You will probably have a hard time finishing it all in one day as it covers alot of sections. Make sure to book a tour first in your native language before you go, camera's are not allowed inside, there is a large parking place in Tahrir square right in front of... More
