Sadly they are moving the best items to the GEM However they are putting out new items from storage. I plan coming back in 2021 to see the GEM & will still come to the "Old" museum. I try to find the older museums as they have treasures in them and fewer tourists

We visited the Museum of Egyptian Antiques as part of our tour of Cairo with Egypt Tours Portal. The history is amazing but without having our guide “Max” with us we would have not know the stories behind the pieces - Max is an exceptionally experienced Egyptian historian and is able to keep kids interested as well. It is amazing to see in person what we learnt in secondary school in Australia. Highly recommend both the museum and taking a guide. Note: For those thinking of visiting in covid times know that you are temperature checked on arrival and it isn’t too busy to stay a safe distance.

When we visited at the end of August the Mummy Room was already closed as part of the relocation to the new site at Giza. Much was already packed away or being packed. Fortunately the King Tut mask was still there. Great shame even when largely empty of tourists that you can’t take photos.

You travel in time and go back a few thousand years and explore the glory of Egypt. From one era to another all in one place. If you want it all plan for at least two day visit.
