I visited this museum, in February 2015, expecting great things. It costs 60 LE to enter. The museum is small, poorly lit ( no doubt to preserve items - but also to make you think there is more to see). The mummified items include a duck, a cat, I think one alleged human mummy, and a few bits and pieces.... More

Went to this after Luxor museum, there is one room of rather shabby looking exhibits. Really not worth paying to go in. It took us 10 mins to get around it. One to miss

This museum is only a twenty minute walk from the sonesta and is very safe to walk no problem and very little hassle from any of the locals. Once you have reached the museum it Is excellent with things you don't normally see the objects in here.

This was my second visit to this museum and the price is now 60LE (£5ish) 30LE Student. Although only one room there are some interesting artefacts including the mummified remains of a 21st-dynasty high priest of Amun, called Maserhartil, a crocodile, a Fish, a Baboon, a Ram, and some of the tools used for mummification. Vitrines show the tools and... More

There's nothing there! I costs 60LE to visit 1 room with 1 human, cat, duck, baby crocodile and a lamb mummies accompanied by a few mummification instruments. You could take it all in and be back out in 5 mins. There were more security personel than artifacts.

The first time I visited the museum was 10 years ago it was fascinating but small. I went back recently and unfortunately there was building work so some buts were inaxesable but what I saw was again fascinating! Down side for me security and staff make you feel as welcome as Mossad in a mosque!

If you prefer (as I do) small or medium size museums over big ones, this one will give you just enough information to keep you interested and maybe impel to learn more about mummification. Ticket is overpriced for foreigners, but this is common in Egypt (as always "special price for you, my friend" :). Taking photos is not allowed inside... More

This is a small room with very little worth seeing when I viewed it. It is not worth the 60 LE full prices or even the 30 LE student price and is a complete rip off. You might forget this advice as I did and think there is something there that you might l learn about the mummification process or... More

If you are interested in how the dead were mummified, then this a must visit.They have lectures on how things were done and with what materials, some wonderful exhibits.
