This well-designed little museum packs more per square meter than other more famous museums. You truly do travel through time and see the vast array of Egypt's history. It's a must-see.

Not as big as the museum in Cairo, but has a good collection of pieces from different eras in Egyptian history. Also houses Coptic artefacts.
