small, entertaining museum

do not plan your trip around it, but don't walk by if you are in the neighborhood. The museum is small but it is entertaining and well designed.

Personally, the museum is not a big wow factor but its worth visited if you have extra time and $$. Its quite informative, proving enough information for tourist to understand mummification process after they leave the museum despite their small size as compared to other well known museum in egypt. P/s: No photography! or they might fine you, delete the... More

It is too small and the collection far too few. It should have been clubbed with the main Luxor museum and made it more interesting.

We had an excellent time visiting the museum. Quite the spectacle to see all of the mummies inside. It was extremely beautiful. Definitely recommended

but there are better things to do. This is a very small affair and not particularly interesting. It is always included in the tours but don't bother if you are on your own (instead a guide book will provide all the details). Better spend the day in Karnak. May be of interest to intellectually-challenged teenagers fascinated by the gruesome process... More

The museum is nice to pass a short summer shower. 30 Minutes will do the trick. Some nice exhibits, but certainly not a must.

It does not really tell you how the mummification goes, an illustrative video would be a better way to show it.

Visit this place for an insight into how the Mummification process was performed on the Pharoh and animals and see the tools they used, Fantastic day.
