I don't recommend this as there is not much to look at. Its not very expensive but only 1 mummy to see. Much better to go to the luxor museum.

Quite nice to see all tools clear that were used during the mumification process on people and animals. Animals such as goats, ducks, crocodiles and cats etc were sacred to the ancient Egyptians but also part of their daily lives. As well as Humans animal mummies were also on display. Inside the museum as you walk round there is a... More

Very near Luxor temple, this museum is small but explains mummification in an interesting way. Great exhibits.

I was really looking forward to this museum but it is small and poorly done. Only 60 LE ($6 at today's exchange) but still not much worth it. Even the examples of tools and mummies are not well done. I was really hoping for more on the process of mummification than the few drawing on the walls and tool display.

I'm not sure why so many reviewers, both here and in guidebooks, disparage the Mummification Museum. It's hardly massive, but it is filled with high quality objects that aid the viewer to understand the process of mummification and the rituals of death in ancient Egypt. I was thoroughly impressed and would recommend it to travelers on their way to the... More

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

This is not for travellers on budget. The museum is very small, poor light and I was thinking I'll ve much deeper insight of the mummification. But the museum just showing a mummy and couple of animals mummies. Some tools used to do the process. Won't recommend it for tight budget or time. photography nit allowed and it's for 100le... More
