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

Contrary to some comments here, I think this place is well worth a visit. It has some very unique artefacts. It is quite small but dont this deceive you. Well worth the money

We visited this museum along with the Luxor Museum with two young children. Both museums have human mummies which fascinated the kids. They are definitely worth a visit although if you are short of time in Luxor I would recommend the Valleys of the Nobles and Artisans as my no.1 choice, followed by Howard Carter's House, especially if you can...

It was much smaller than I thogh and only took half an hour to get around. It was well set out and had mummies of people as well as animals. There were also some beautiful sarcophacuses

Very interesting, well presented, well lit but quite expensive (50LE - $7.5) for 20-30 minutes of visit (or less, it’s only 1 room). The mummified baboon is well done.
