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

This was amazing - all his possessions as they were, on display, including his tools of his trade i.e camera, drawing board (with drawings, dark room with water pots and pics, and to top it all off the replica Tomb of Tutankhamun to see also! Don't miss this!

This is great for a visit and you're not rushed. There is also a copy of Tutankhamons tomb to visit at this site.

Stopped off here after visiting Medinat Habu Temple. Quite an interesting house with plenty to see including his study, bedrooms, dark-room and kitchen. Added bonus is a very accurate reconstruction of Tut Ankh Amun's tomb out the back - although it's a reconstruction there is still no photography. However, you can go down and walk around the burial chamber, which... More

This one of the highlights of a trip to the West Bank well worth a visit the house is as Carter left it mainly because all of his belongings have been taken from the Cairo museum and placed back in his house

We visited the house as part of our visit to the Valley of the Kings. I have always had an interest in Egyptology so it was very special for me to see the house where Howard Carter lived whilst excavating the tomb of Tutankhamun. Due to the lack of tourists in Luxor we had the house to ourselves and had... More
