    The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Start with a hotel pickup, and travel by air-conditioned minivan to the Egyptian Museum in central Cairo. On route, hear an informed introduction to the museum from your private, qualified Egyptologist guide. If there’s anything you want to see more or less of, let your guide know. Your tour itinerary can be tailored to your preference. Home to more than 165,000 Egyptian artifacts, the museum’s main treasures lie in its Tutankhamun collection, an array of antiquities from the reign of the boy pharaoh, including his gold death mask and six gilded coffins. The museum also houses near-countless other treasures including everyday objects, tombs, jewelry and mummies from the prehistoric Egyptian period through to the Roman era. Knowing where to start can be daunting, so let your guide introduce you to the highlights. View the Tutankhamun exhibits, including his spectacular, solid gold death mask; chariot and other funerary riches. And admire other prize exhibits, such as pharaonic sarcophagi and everyday objects, Roman-era funerary paintings and more. If you wish, visit the Royal Mummies Room (additional cost), another museum showpiece. Enter this climate-controlled room to view the mummies of Egyptian rulers such as Ramses II, builder of Luxor’s Karnak Temple. After introducing you to the main attractions, your guide will give you free time to explore further, at your leisure. If you wish, following your time at the museum, take the opportunity to visit a Papyrus Institute to learn about this ancient form of writing and art, painted onto papyrus canvases. Perhaps buy some papyrus scenes as souvenirs (own expense), before your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.
