We spent hours wandering the museum. There were lots to look at; however, the museum wasn’t very well organized. Most of the artifacts and displays did not have explanations which is a shame. The King Tut display is amazing, as well as the mummies.

This museum will remind you of; A night a the museum and you will secretly hope to be locked in and live that night. Never a dull moment here among mummies and the rest of the great collection.

Amazing pieces on display but hardly any information. There is so much to see it can be dizzying, I would highly suggest a guide. Down fall is that a lot of the artifacts aren't contained and everyone touches them, feel like this is ruining the...More

Nice museum! It might be the Egyptian standard to maintain in such standards. Be aware of the tour guides near the entrance! They took the tourists for granted and arguing with you for business. We have visited today as a family of four. There was...More
