People have already said most of what there is to say about the quality of this museum. Our tip is to plan and prioritise what you want to see and go to those things first ( we agree with yorkshirecat56). The temptation is to allow yourself to influenced by guides and follow the chronological route but, for us, on probably our only trip to this museum, the King Tut artefacts were our “must sees” and we headed straight for those rooms (turn right on entering and then up the stairs). This enabled us to relax after seeing everything we really did not want to miss, tour around as much of the rest of the museum as we had time for, and enjoy it all the more. With regard to the King Tut rooms, we surprised ourselves by just how emotional it was. The exhibits defy words really and you can get overwhelmed by everything. We had to remind ourselves to take our time and soak it all up.
Ironically, when we were there, there was no gift shop to exit through which was disappointing. There is a shop but has no stock, possibly because of recent events.
