Great artifacts but the museum needs alot of work. Displays are clearly old, no ac so it'll be quite hot in the summer, cold in the winter. They could use more explanations and media to tell the story from section to section.

If you are in Cairo, you must visit the Museum. Actually one day is not enough, but you can see most of items. You must visit King Tut's room and the Royal Mummies. Highly recommended.

There are no labels on 80% of the exhibits, and the labels that are are about 50 years old. There are plenty of guides outside the museum ready to lend their services for a price
