Thought this gem of a museum was actually better than the Egyptian museum. Everything was well displayed with English descriptions. The items were attractively spaced and not so overcrowded as in the Egyptian museum. There are also two mummies displayed here. Spent about 1.5 hours here, even though it is smaller in scope. Air conditioned. Free toilets. Walkable from the cruise ship area (about 15 minutes) but you will be harassed with relentless vendors trying to sell you things. Nice walk adjacent on the boardwalk by the river in a well-lit area. Be aware of scammers nearby in the area that pretend to work at one of the cruise ships. They pretend that they are doing an errand for the ship and ask if you want to walk along. Soon, you are riding with them on a horse-drawn carriage (which you are expected to pay later) as well as stopping by several vendors (spice, Papyrus) where they pressure you to buy. They are very smooth operators which can con even the most sophisticated traveler.

I found the Luxor Museum to be one of the best museums i visited on my holiday to Egypt. The Mumification Museum is small and quick to go through, the Antiquities Museum in Cairo was either boxed up, shipped off or awaiting boxing and shipping while the Nubian Museum was having some work done. I loved the atmosphere of this museum and the exhibits were fresh and clean. It doesn't have as many exhibits as the Cairo Museum but it does have some knockout exhibits, such as, the greywacke statue of Thutmose III, panels from Akhenaten's temple of the Aten and Ahmose's mummy. The museum is set out in a spiral fashion with dimmed lighting. All the exhibits come from around Luxor, both the East and West banks. Not to be missed. However, during my visit in January 2020, there were many touts outside the museum which can be off putting.

The Luxor Museum prides itself on the quality, not the quantity, of its artifacts. The collection is beautifully curated among two floors, displayed in an uncluttered manner with each piece clearly labeled. Quite a contrast to the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in Cairo, where I was totally overwhelmed by the experience. Luxor has two royal mummies on display, so if you’ve never seen a mummy, here’s your chance! I admit it’s creepy, but the Egyptians were masters of mummification and it was normal to them.

Sadly the new museum wasn't open in Cairo and so we are comparing the old Victorian museum with this splendid 'new' museum in Luxor where the exhibits are beautifully presented and well-lit. We spent about 90 minutes in the museum, but the items on display are so beautiful you will enjoy them as much for their artistic beauty as for their place in Ancient History
