Houses so many treasures found in tombs. I believe they are building another museum so some items are being moved there. Egyptians are still finding more tread buried in sands.

lots of horribly displayed objects, with no proper information at all. However seeing the Royal mummies, Tutankhamen mask and Fayoum masks is a must when visiting Cairo. The whole place is an experience and a bit of time travel, I felt like being brought back...More

I was overwhelmed with the preserved relics in the museum. Beautiful pieces and fascinating history. Best to get a guide as it adds meaning to the experience. They are currently building a new museum which I’m sure will be even better . A must see

If you in Cairo without visit the museum, then you are not in Egypt.. very old museum with mainly the old, middle and new kingdom history. That is enough to spend whole day inside

The Egyptian Museum has a massive collection of 600,000 artifacts including the golden ornaments and royal mummies. It is advisable to take a guide who can give better details.

Beautiful and historic museum in the heart of civilization. Get a good private guide, it makes everything so much more meaningful. The Tut exhibit is worth visiting Cairo by itself!
