Thousands of antiquities under one roof... and thousands more that are still not shown to the public. Do not miss the collection from King Tut's tomb and please do pay the extra fee to see the mummies. Definitely a must-do

This is a 'must-see' place for every first-time visitor to Cairo. The building is old but grand and the displays are somewhat dated but the individual items are amazing. Unfortunately, some of the labeling is poor. I get the impression that not much effort is...More

The museum is not overwhelmingly large or difficult to navigate. The displays are well-crafted with information cards in English. Visiting the Antiquities Museum definitely adds to the Egyptian experience.

Full of wonderful stuff, but chaotically presented and badly annotated. What a mess. And a serious disappointment after Luxor museum which by contrast is beautifully laid out.

I wish that I could help you, but I can't say for sure. The exhibit travels around the world, but there was a permanent exhibit at the Cairo museum when I was there. My guess is that it is still there because of its... More

Two hours with a guide for "Not huge museum people" sounds fine. It is large, so a guide is essential. $80 sounds high. You will want a guide for everything, in my opinion, and we are often do-it-yourself travelers. We used... More
