Some of the best treasures found in the area are on display in the Luxor Museum. The granite carvings of the pharaohs are incredible. How did that do that?

This Museum has benefitted from a large extension over the last decade and is now without doubt a "must see" particularly for first time visitors. Now on two levels is houses two Royal Mummies with an extensive collection of historical items well documented. A visit suggested early on when in Luxor as this will help you better understand the local... More

Fairly small £10.00 to get in .Tucked away from the main streets .Wonderfully presented. Loads of school children who want to speak English to you

the museum space is cool unfortunate about the amateur lighting and displays with descriptions of mostly sculptures USD15 entry, they should be able to improve both the lighting and make better signage some pieces were difficult to see because of the cheapo lighting

This was a last minute add on to my personally designed package tour, and I am so glad I visited the museum. It has some incredible statues, artifacts, large ancient boats, and especially several heads of the heretic pharaoh Akhenaten. Unfortunately, photographs inside are not allowed. There are numerous statues of Amenhotep III, Queen Thai/Tiye, Thutmose III, and others that... More

This museum is the perfect addition to all the sights in and around Luxor. It is not stuffed full with antiquities like the museum in Cairo, but just shows a good selection of exquisite exhibits. The explanations are clear and easy to understand. The highlight is definitely the head of the goddess Hathor.

The Luxor Museum is an excellent museum which can be visited in a one to two hour time frame. The collection includes an assortment of not only statues and busts, but also of jewelry, pottery, and--of course--a few mummies. All of the pieces are displayed beautifully. We went in the afternoon, and the museum was not very crowded. It was... More

The museum is small compared to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, but still has some well preserved and unique pieces. Photos aren't technically allowed inside but with a well placed bribe you can still take some great shots (don't use the flash though to still not damage any of the artifacts).
