Small entrance charge is well worth it. The museum is cool and very clearly marked exhbits are easily accessible. There is also a small cinema which gives information on how and where exhibits were found.

This modern museum displays the exquisite, and in many cases uncannily well preserved scultpures that have been found at Luxor in recent years. Most are from the New Kingdom, and especially the 18th Dynasty, Egypt’s golden age.

This is a much smaller museum than the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in Cairo, but that is to be expected. It is, however, much more modern, and the items are very well presented. A guide is helpful if you don't have a detailed knowledge of...More

The Luxor museum is well worth a visit and has a wonderful collection of well restored local treasures including 2 excellent mummies. The descriptions are excellent and informative. Well worth a visit and a great way to avoid the heat.

Sorry thought you were referring to the Egyotian Museum in Cairo. The Luxor Museum is Egyptian 100 for all exhibits.
