We visited both the Mummy museum and the tomb site across the street. This was our only chance to see mummies, as the Egyptian museum was inaccessible.

Recent discoveries of 10,000 mummies in a field outside of town have the place on the map. Half a dozen are on display. They date from the Greco-Roman period. Very interesting.
