“small but perfectly formed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

A little gem of a museum, in town on the edge of the river and not far from the ferry, it is well laid out and easy to get around. Knives, unguents and herbs, bandages and methods of mummification are explained and can be seen. You'll be amazed at the process involved and probably pity the priest who had to do the dirty work. Nothing here is boring. This museum is well worth a visit

“INTERESTING MUSEUM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

This museum is so interesting. it is full of everything to do with Mummification. I found the instrument that they used for the mummification smaller than i thought they would be. There is a mummy in there as well as lots of things to see.I had my own guide but he was not allowed to come into the main room with me. I will vist this museum again.

“Interesting...”

...albeit small. Well worth a visit though. I particularly liked the mummified cat. You're not going to learn a great deal about the process of mummification, but there is always google!

“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Mummification museum was easy to get too, on the front in Luxor and down some steps. There was everything there covering all the history, how and why things happened.You could easily spend a long time there enthralled over the history and items. Well worth a visit.
