I'm now sat in Cairo, having just returned from a week in Luxor, during which time I was again able to visit the Luxor Museum. Although the museum is now only open from 09:00 - 17:0, with no evening opening, due to the low visitor numbers in recent years,& the admission price is now LE100, I would still recommend a... More

A small museum around £10 entry fee. Interesting if you have been to Karnak Temple. Some of the pieces they couldn't make better in this day and age for sure!

Nice but small museum costs 100ep. You get to see some mummies as well. Outside this museum is the best place to relax and watch the Nile with less touts bothering you.

The museum is of a reasonable size and does have some interesting and impressive exhibits including two mummified corpses. As a result if you only visit one museum, I would recommend Luxor musuem over the much smaller, mummification museum. The information provided complements a trip to the temples and tombs of Luxor nicely. It is air conditioned so can be... More

All I can say about this trip was that it was magical. The museum itself is not very large and covers two floors. However, the quality of the artefacts were excellent and well displayed. A word of advice, watch out for men who appear to be working there and encouraging you to take pictures - even though the signs clearly... More

Brilliant museum!! Lots to see.. Some of the staues start to get a bit boring (lots of the same sort of thing) But they also have old coins, Tutankhamuns bed, Mummies etc... Very good & well worth a visit.

I have visited this museum on many occasions and it is certainly one not to be missed it tells of so much of the history of Egypt. It is set out very well indeed and the information is very good. It is air conditioned and has a beautiful flow to it. The museum also has a good gift shop and... More
