A great place to visit. Much to see and enjoy. The guides are really knowledgable and happy to share their gift. We are very thankful of the time and care he took to explain as much as he could to us.

Amazing site. Worth a visit! Simply go and do not so much attention to the media about Egyptian crisis!

The Open-air museum should not be confused with the Karnak temple, to which it belongs. You have to pay a separate entry ticket of approximately 40 Egyptian Pounds and is not visited by gourps, granting you a short but nice run away from the crowd.
It contains reconstructed temples from pieces found in the pillars or other structures (you can still see the major restauration works going on).
Do not miss the statue of Sekhmet! It is located in a hidden chapel which is always closed. Do not be shy and ask a guardian; for as little as 10 egyptian pounds they will run to the rescue, will rummage with the lock and will let you in.

Fantastic history but very large and open not much shade in the heat of the day - make sure you walk around the scarab and see the sacred pool
