Some of the best remaining hieroglyphics that you can experience outside of the museums. Don't miss all the tombs on the property.

First time back in Saqqara after several years. What a surprise: the Horemheb museum. Very neat, very well presented objects all found localy. Quality of the items unsurpassed,not even in the main museum in Cairo. Must be recommended. Small museum, but a real gem.

Everything in this museum was found at Saqqara. Small, well laid out, well displayed.My favorite is the first room, with reliefs and faience tiles from the chambers under the Djoser complex. Actual visit was Halloween 2011.

Saw this after the Egyptian museum - what a contrast! Although the Imhotep Museum can't compete with the EM's sheer number of artifacts, the IM's layout and design makes it much more legible. It was clean and organized, without the warehouse atmosphere of the EM....More
