“In the middle of a move?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

There are some amazing things to see in the museum, however, it seems like they are in the process of moving out of the city center to October 6 city. Still worth a look!

“'Not to be missed'”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

Having a guide really helped us to make the most of our visit. Our guide choose the most interesting exhibits to discuss. Their history and significance were fasinating and we would have missed so much without the help. There were so many exhibits you cannot observe them all in just one go and we would have been overwhelmed if we had gone on our own and tried to look at everything.
Take a bottle of water with you, it is warm and humid.

“Wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

You really need a full day to see everything but we made the most of 3 hours. Be warned though, it was really humid inside, well worth it though, especially to see Tut-ankh-amun's death mask.

“Should be so much better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

This old museum shows so many signs of neglect that it is a tragedy. The raw material they have on display is so unique , let's hope they get their act together for a new museum. And the bookshop / gift shop does not existany more. Unbelievable for such a major tourist destination
