This museum is on the Corniche next to the Nile, just along from the ferry. It shows all aspects of Mummification. Very well worth a visit when in Luxor.

One of our best places in Luxor - well laid out, and well lit. Certainly worth a look if you have time.

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!
