They told us it was closed and yet it seems a rumor maintained to keep away visitors! It's worth the visit if you are passionate about Tutankhamon's tomb discovery. Personal items of Carter are on display, his original paperwork, notes and diary open on the page where he wrote about Lord Carnavon's death. Lots of details that take you back in time!

Really enjoyed visiting Howard Carter House, have visited twice its really atmospheric and captures the era perfectly with lots of interesting photographs, letters and personal objects of Mr Carters. There is his darkroom where he developed his photographs of the excavation and his notes and letters. The household furniture compliments the house and the gentleman who guides you round is very friendly and helpful and so enthusiastic he made us tea. There is a garden with tables and chairs to relax in and enjoy the surrounding scenery. I would recommend a visit here its like stepping into a Agatha Christie novel. We hired a taxi instead of taking a formal tour.

You need to buy ticket pretty far away from house, so I'm glad my taxi driver knew where to go. The house is in the middle of nowhere. Being fascinated with King Tut's treasures, I wanted to see the home of the man that found the tomb. Its small and the tour thru the house goes quickly, but its still worth it. I walked around the house and outside is a covered patio and landscape. The coolest thing I saw was an photo of an x-ray of the golden mask of King Tut , when it was still inside the coffins. That was my favorite thing to see.
