I can see myself living here. It was a comfortable looking home. You get to see the whole house: bedrooms, cold-storage, kitchen, office, photography studio.

I specifically asked the tour company to make sure I got to see this on my trip to Egypt. I was in Egypt 9 years ago and don't remember this being available to see. It was amazing. One fact to know before you go here is that this is not the original HOUSE, it a replica. The original house sits nearby up on a hill. All of the items inside this "house/museum" are all authentic. It gives you a really good feel for what Howard Carter's daily life was while he worked for 10 years to find Tuts tomb. Although my guide pointed out some things I think you could tour this place by yourself. If you are not a big Tut fan, this might not be the place for you.

I loved visiting Howard Carters house, it is so well done as a museum you can imagine his life there in the 1920s when lived there. The furniture and layout is really superb. And the tomb recreation next door is so perfect it’s incredible as I visited it afterwards and you would not see any difference. Good to see it.

After a visit to the valley of the kings & Queens we stopped by Howard Carter house the man who discovered the tomb of tutankhamun entry fee 80 EGP .
He spent around 15 to 20 years there in a comfortable house completing the work cataloguing what was found in Tutankhamun tomb.

It is interesting only because of who lived there. I understand none of the furnishings are original to Howard Carter.

We traded Valley of the Queens for Howard Carter’s house on our full day tour to get to see it. (Nefertari tomb is $75USD extra at V of Q). It’s not kept up to standards of historic homes in other places but it’s a wonderful look at how this type of construction keeps you cool, how he lived… and our guide was intrigued by the typewriter! The replica Tomb was actually a nice little museum w signage and pics.

An OK place to visit if you have time, but not a must see. There are some interesting old photos & items that give you a feel of the time period.

It is not a must-see attraction of Egypt but very recommended. We were regretfully not able to enter.
The house is visible from the distance on the ridge and is overlooking the road leading to the Valley of Kings

While touring the Necropolis of Thebes (Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens) and the fabulous temples in the area, I strongly suggest you include a stop to visit Howard Carter's home. This home includes personal belongings of Howard Carter, and of course seeing his office, bedroom, kitchen etc. are extremly interesting. A replica of the original tomb of Tutankhamen which was discovered by Howard Carter is also possible to visit while touring his home.

This is a great little spot to learn about Howard Carter and the discovery of Tut’s tomb. The replica of the tomb is perfect. I was the real one right before and they are really indistinguishable beyond the extra rooms in the replica. The caretaker is a really, really nice man who goes out of his way to make the experience a special one. Please visit! I was told I was the first visitor in several weeks.
