If you like Egyptian history or history in general this is the place. Brave yourself for the heat, there is no AC. The exceptions is worth the discomfort. Enjoy it.

This museum cannot be missed. It is the one and only with an amazing collection of Egyptian antiquities. The highlight is the original mummy cases, furniture and artifacts from King Tut. You are not allowed to take pictures in King Tut’s exhibit but to be...More

The layout and artifacts are amazing. Frustrated that to some things you have to by extra tickets and to pay to take photographs, is an issue. Why not have a dedicated photograph book provided along with the entrance ticket.

We visited the museum in December 2015 when the new museum was still under construction. This place requires at least a month to visit if you want to do its collection artifacts any remote justice. However, we had only one day and an outstanding tour...More

I had already been to The Louvre in Paris and the British Museum in London, and so naturally I found my way to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo (also known as the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities or the Museum of Cairo). It is of course...More

We have been in Cairo and decided to see some highlights and Antiquities Museum was one of them, particularly the section dedicated to Tutankhamen even though he is a tiny blip in Egyptian history. His mask is fabulous. The detail is phenomenal. The articles found...More

I was there last week in March. They were packing up a few things, but Tut is too popular to pack up early. It will be in one place or the other.
