Small museum with great artifacts. Gained a lot of good information from my tour director but please note that a tour guide is not necessarily provided by the museum. This location has two mummy’s which while fascinating was also a little creepy. You can see the entirety of this museum in about 90 minutes. Also, at this location watch out for the kids who ask for money or will try to sell you items. I swear these kids look for the tour buses to get the tourist.

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.

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.

Modern display. The layout of the museum is modern and easy to follow. You don't need a tour guide to do this activity, there are relatively good/understandable English descriptions explaining the artifacts. The museum also has 2 mummies on display, which is quite cool. It is also a great escape from the heat of the day.

We had a wonderful time in the museum, recommend it. You find all kinds of antiquities there, mummies, tombs, statues, etc. The museum closes in the afternoon and only opens at 5 pm. 2 hours is the amount of time to see everything without rushing. Felt the museum was well organized.

$140 per adult, we spent an hour and a half at 6pm today. They have beautiful statues, wooden sarcophagus, a few mummies. We enjoyed it as a 28 year old gal and a 33 year old fella.

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 is a lovely air conditioned museum. It's really informative and we ended up spending a lot longer here than we thought from other reviews. I would recommend starting off with the 7min presentation next to the gift shop first as it's a good overview of what to expect.
Everything is in good condition and well explained

This is a well laid out museum including mummies of a king and his wife. Should take about 1 hr to 1.5 hrs to visit. You can skip this if you visit Egyptian museum in Cairo and/or Nubian museum in Aswan.

This museum should have encompassed the Mummification museum as well, as that one is just a very, very small room with few animal mummy exhibits so to speak.

I'm proud of my country to have such great museem with all those ancient Pharoah statues.
There are tour guide who can help u to answer any questions for free.

The statues there are in a complete state and lovely to find such old pieces still there and holding itself for 5000 B.C.
