The museum is fairly small but interesting, probably not worth the entrance fee if your not too into Ancient Egypt though. I know it was a temporary exhibition but the bottom floor didn’t have any English translations which was a pity.

Our visit to the Museum was good. They had a decent organization of artifacts but still felt like some context was missing. Several language translations were offered, so getting information on each artifact was ok. The app which is available via wifi did not quite...More
