“Hard to find”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

When I was there it had just opened but it was very good little museum mostly full of things they had found in the Med. Sea (Roman not Egyptian). They also had a crypt set up you could go into. Most people didn't know where it was, so I'd take a taxi not depend on people giving you instructions. Pictures were allowed at the time.

“lovely building”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

it is sad to read that egypt had to pay an arm and a leg to the us government for this building.
it is well kept. interesting but totally static.
nice open air cafe at the back and the most wonderful plants all watered by trickle irrigation.

“Well Presented”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

This is a small but very well presented museum, the artifacts on show are of great quality, again you will need a guide to explain the history behing each exhibit.
