Many artifacts which are great but favorite was the contents of King Tut’s tomb. Numerous mummies and artifacts from 2700 BC) through the Greco-Roman period.
There are two floors. Upstairs exhibit has of the contents of Tut's tomb, including his famous funerary mask, the beautiful jewelry and the Royal Mummy Room, requires the purchase of a separate ticket.which you much have Egyptian pounds or walk down the street to the bank especially if the ATM on site is not working which happened to us. Inside you can see the mummies of some of Egypt’s most famous pharaohs, including Ramesses II, Seti I, and Hatshepsut.

Does not feel like a pristine sterile environment. In fact it feels like you went back in time to mid 20th century. There are crates yet unopened that arrived from new excavations and all the bustle makes the museum even more exciting and you are made aware that a lot of history is still being unearthed. It houses some of the greatest artifacts of the ancient Egyptian world and is a must if you love Egyptian Pharaonic history.

Great place for history lovers and everything you learn at school you will see it there!
Huge museum it takes too long to see everything and I suggest to get a guide so he can explain you the highlights of the museum and the history.

If you love ancient Egypt this place is for you! It's definitely aged quite a bit and you'll see a good amount of renovation as well. The signage is dated and isn't super beneficial so I'd recommend getting a tour guide to assist you with what you are looking at. Definitely spend the extra 90 pounds (student price) for the mummy rooms. It's incredible!

There is a new massive museum being built near the pyramids and some items will be moved from this museum to there when it opens later in 2020.

We were at the Egyptian Antiquities museum in late October, 2019. It was crowded and not air conditioned. It was musty and stuffy smelling and we were all sweating. Okay, now the good stuff: The amount of artifacts is mind boggling. This is not to be missed. Bring water and good shoes and of course some toilet paper (always in Egypt).
