The home of Carter has been filled with period furnishings and objects. You get to see his darkroom and indoor dog house, both of which are pretty unusual! In the yard is a new replica of the tomb of Tutankhamen, which is really worth a visit. There is a lot of contextualization on the walls, and the replica is pretty... More

We did not see this in detail. From a distant look, we felt it was well preserved and well managed. More than the house, we need to appreciate the passion for this gentleman for historical excavations.

I first visited Howard Carter's house a few years ago and was looking forward to return. The house remains unchanged - beautifully restored building with various antiques and mementos from excavations. Unfortunately the show stopper hologram of Mr Carter presenting his discovetu has been replaced by a small flat screen TV showing a film of the excavation. An addition however... More

Again the Howard Carter House isn't on the usual tourist itinerary but worth a visit. Currently 50LE which includes entrance to the replica Tutankhamun tomb.

I am sorry, but I am serious about Egypt and I appreciate the focus on Carter and his discovery of King Tut's tomb (and other important discoveries) but I was disappointed with the presentation. Basically for 50 LE (only $5) you walk through the house and see his stuff sitting on his desk and where he lived while he worked... More

A visit to Howard Carters house was an afterthought whilst in the area. It was most interesting and had it's own guide. The house is equipped with all the original fixtures such as study, bedrooms of Carter and Early Carnarvon, kitchen and many other extras. The house gives an insight to the time of search and discovery of Tutankhamen's Tomb.

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.
