“Not worth it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

It is overpriced. It does give some good information about the mummification process, but it is very small. Then, on the way out, the shopkeeper is relentless in selling you goods. He does the "official government shop" and "please help me translate something into English" nonsense to get you into the shop. Just go to Luxor Museum, the mummies are much better there.

“Knowledge of the Mummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

Amazing museum, small but is enough to give you information about mummy. From animal to human, everything preserved. Crocodile eggs, coffins, etc. When you visit mummification museum, or tombs or related to the death in ancient egypt, please do not try to read, to translate or something similar, because the curse that we do not know will really effect you, believe it or not is true.

“Interesting Museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

I visited in March 2012. I thought the museum was small. It should be merged with the Luxor Museum. Some displays were dimly lit, but overall, it was an interesting visit. All you need is about an hour (or less) to see everything this place has to offer.

“A Fine little exhibition”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

This is a very good small exhibition of the essentials of mummification. Not in the slightest gory. High quality display, spacious, well lit and informative. Well worth a visit.
