If you're like me, you found the Cairo museum great, but overwhelming from the sheer number of artifacts and confusing placement of some exhibits. The Luxor Museum is totally different. The museum is located on the corniche, about a 12 minute walk eastward from Luxor Temple and the Souq. At the time of my visit, it was open in the... More

Unbelievably cool museum with so much history. It is so fascinating learning about the Egyptian culture. The real mummies on display was unreal! It's definitely not as big as Egyptian Museum in Cairo. This one is more organized and exciting!

Very well organized, modern museum. Much different feel then the Cairo Museum. You can see the entire museum in an hour or a bit longer. It has a good flow to it. You don't feel like you're doubling back because you missed something. Very nice.

More than 15 years ago I visited the museum for the last time. Now I went back and was surprised by its beauty. The interior has entirely been redone, and it's very well done. Even some parts have been added. People who like history and art surely will be amazed. The many exceptional beautiful statues are represented in an unique... More

Had a quick look around here on our overnite stay in Luxor. If you have time whilst visiting luxor for the valley of the Kings, try and make sure you fit in a small visit to the Luxor museum

I hadn't really considered going to the Luxor Museum but our guide Ahmed advised it and he was right to. We thought that the collection (which includes the Luxor cache) was better than the Cairo Museum. It was very well laid out and a nice size. Allow at least an hour. Check opening times, as it is open in the... More

It is was interesting and great to get out of the summer midday heat. Although it would be great t have a guidebook/sheet, but I wondered around for 2 hours and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was the only one in the museum - so sad!

You will see some incredible pieces here. I particularly liked the mummy. What did surprise me is that I would have thought it was bigger
