Interesting to see where Howard Carter lived. Nice view and peaceful garden. The replica of Tut's tomb is now open so that was also interesting with lots of information plaques on the walls.

We visited this House of Howard Carter which is set out to reflect the way he lived almost 100yrs ago. It contains most of he`s work and photographs from earlier digs up till he discovered King Tuts tomb in Valley of kings. It gives a great insight into how he lived and perceived the era and documented everything he discovered.... More

We spent a wonderfully relaxing hour at this house. Step back in time, this house has peace flowing through it. Left just as it was in HC day. His possessions are amazing, the camera, phonograph, hats, papers etc. An amazing insight into life for HC.

Unless you have an appreciation for the story of Tut's discovery, you may not get much out of this. If you do though, what a great addition to your Egypt/Valley experience. If you ant make it to Valley of the Kings, then hit the Tut tomb replica. It is not exact, Tut himself is still in his tomb in Valley.

Been to Howard Carter's house previously and went specifically to see the replica of Tutankhamun's tomb. It was exceptional and, according to a friend who has seen the original, is an exact copy, even down to the bacteria. Highly recommended.

We sort of stumbled across this by accident and I'm so glad we did. It's a must see place, especially because of all the information which is dotted around. The replica of Tutankhamun's tomb is also fascinating as they have opened up all of the rooms to give you a feel of what it was really like. They've done an... More
