    A Highlight of Luxor not to be missed
    After you have seen the temples and visited the Valley of the Kings, be sure to visit this wonderful museum. Her you will find an excellent collection of artwork and cultural artifacts displayed in an attractive and modern manner. Less is more: the museum is not large, but every item of of interest. It's of course nothing compared to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, but in some ways more enjoyable with less crowds and very peaceful.

    Nice Museum in Luxor
    The artefacts in the museum are nicely presented and most have good signs in English and Arabic near the entrance of the museum. We find there are enough signs to explain the rest but you are left guessing for a few artefacts towards the end of the exhibition but we felt it didn't take away from the experience. Entrance fee is 140 EGP and they are open from 9-1 and 5-8 so make sure you plan accordingly. The museum is along the Corniche and the area is pretty walkable. Plan to spend about 1 to 2 hours here depending on your group's interest. The toilets do not have toilet paper so you will either have to tip an attendant or bring your own. There is a bookstore and library right when you enter and a lengthy Tintin display. There is signage above the bookstore entrance that says there is a 7 minute presentation but we could not find it. The on site cafe is presently closed but there are some spots along the Corniche that have drinks and snacks - be careful and ask for a menu where available because some of these shops charge the most in Luxor.

    If you’re made it this far…
    If you’ve managed to make it to Luxor, i would be a shame to miss out on this museum. As noted at all other tourist sites security is obvious and heavily armed, at least at the entrance. The museum has displayed a very good contextual story of Luxor and the nearby valley of the Kings and Queens. Well marked and described and vey good lighting. The wooden sarcophaguses are the highlight, and so vivid that it’s hard to believe they are thousands of years old.

    What a gem!
    This was not part of our itinerary but changes meant we had some spare time one afternoon. What a gem! A really well created space with a fascinating selection of antiquities. It is a darkened environment which give it a very peaceful ambiance. You wont be doubling up on your experiences in Cairo so don't miss out. 1.5 hrs is more than enough, unless you get caught behind the scourge at these places - the SLR photographer.

    Worth stopping by
    I unexpectedly had some free time in the morning of my last day in Luxor, so I decided to take a taxi over to the Luxor museum - and I'm glad I did. It's a relatively small museum that's focused on artifacts found in Luxor Temple. If you happen to have a couple hours available, take a tour of this museum. It's also a great way to escape the heat.

    Beautiful Exhibits and Friendly Staff
    It has various statues on display as you enter this museum. It also has a small room where the mummy of a king is on display. Entrance fee here is 200 EGP. Displayed also here are the findings of the excavation project. Outside area: Infront of this museum are benches facing the Nile River. This is a perfect area to see the River, the West Side of Luxor, the boats, etc.

    Highly recommend visiting in the evening
    Fabulous museum. We visited in the evening around 6pm and was lovely and quiet and peaceful. The building itself is also interesting as well as the amazing artefacts it houses. Conveniently located opposite the river walkway

    Superb museum
    The museum is modern and welcoming. The art exposed is obviously incredible. The setting of the sculptures and artefacts is extremely well done. Also this museum is not overwhelming the visitors with thousands of exhibits but focuses of key pieces which are in synch with Karnak and Luxor temple. To be recommended absolutely to all visitors.

    A brilliant museum that’s quieter than it should be
    There were some beautiful statues in amazing condition in this quiet museum right on the Nile corniche. There were basic descriptions of all artefacts which helped with understanding. There were also some old coins, pottery, weapons, and glass objects but the main highlight for me was being able to see statues up close - the one of tuthmosis 3 especially incredible. Entrance fee was 300EGP when we visited & tickets can be bought with card at the entrance. We spent about 1 hour in total.

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.

This museum has been built to show its exhibits to the best effect. Unlike Cairo they are well spaced with good information guides. The flow of the museum is easy to follow and the mummy room makes it very easy to see the detail of the body and the equipment found with it. It can easily be visited in conjunction with the Luxor temple by a short walk along the Corniche if you are prepared to battle through the multiple horse and cart (the ferrari of Egypt) touts.

The Luxor museum holds a small but absolutely outstanding collection of ancient Egyptian material from the Luxor area. The exquisite collection is well presented and labeled. It will had to your appreciation of the high culture that existed at the time of the ancient temple ruins that you'll visit during your stay in Luxor

Wonderful collection which is very well displayed and can easily be photographed too. We went right at opening time 5PM and only a handful of people but by 6PM it was crowded. Be sure to tour the room to the left of the entrance/exit area - it is very easily missed and contains some beautiful items that you are so close to. No guides allowed down in this area so a special place to get close to the displayed items.

This was a fantastic experience! We spent 2 hours here and could have easily spent another hour or two (we had scheduled a pickup, so had to go). There were a total of 4 mummies, two still wrapped and two "exposed". So many beautiful and unique statues. We were truly mesmerized. The museum was laid out very well with a nice flow to see everything and not miss any artifacts. The lighting was excellent for viewing and taking photos (cell phone only, no flash). It was nice and cool inside, so a great way to beat the afternoon heat. It was not crowded and we were able to examine artifacts as long as we liked without being rushed or pushed through. Prices were very reasonable: 70 EGP for students and 140 EGP for adult.

Every piece in this museum is well labeled and detailed. No fake guides hassling you at the entrance. There is a fee for professional video cameras, which is expected.

The staff was lovely and allowed us to stay for a few minutes longer after closing time, to finish our tour that made us lose track of time, immersed in the quality of statues of Sekhmet, Tuthemosis III, Amenhotep III and many other finely presented pieces.

Very much recommended! 5 stars.

The Luxor Museum is just the right size: plenty of cool stuff to see, but not exhausting to do. And the attached bookstore is well worth a visit as well, as they carry many books not from AUC Press and so are not available in the US. Items in the museum are well-displayed and well-signed for the most part.

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.

This uncrowded museum could easily be your first stop in Luxor. Seeing these beautiful statues , many in pristine condition makes the sites that much more appealing. Take pictures and reference them when you visit the sites of so much history. I hope the new museum in Cairo is as nice as this one.
