    If you’re made it this far…
    If you’ve managed to make it to Luxor, i would be a shame to miss out on this museum. As noted at all other tourist sites security is obvious and heavily armed, at least at the entrance. The museum has displayed a very good contextual story of Luxor and the nearby valley of the Kings and Queens. Well marked and described and vey good lighting. The wooden sarcophaguses are the highlight, and so vivid that it’s hard to believe they are thousands of years old.

    What a gem!
    This was not part of our itinerary but changes meant we had some spare time one afternoon. What a gem! A really well created space with a fascinating selection of antiquities. It is a darkened environment which give it a very peaceful ambiance. You wont be doubling up on your experiences in Cairo so don't miss out. 1.5 hrs is more than enough, unless you get caught behind the scourge at these places - the SLR photographer.

    Worth stopping by
    I unexpectedly had some free time in the morning of my last day in Luxor, so I decided to take a taxi over to the Luxor museum - and I'm glad I did. It's a relatively small museum that's focused on artifacts found in Luxor Temple. If you happen to have a couple hours available, take a tour of this museum. It's also a great way to escape the heat.

    Beautiful Exhibits and Friendly Staff
    It has various statues on display as you enter this museum. It also has a small room where the mummy of a king is on display. Entrance fee here is 200 EGP. Displayed also here are the findings of the excavation project. Outside area: Infront of this museum are benches facing the Nile River. This is a perfect area to see the River, the West Side of Luxor, the boats, etc.

    Highly recommend visiting in the evening
    Fabulous museum. We visited in the evening around 6pm and was lovely and quiet and peaceful. The building itself is also interesting as well as the amazing artefacts it houses. Conveniently located opposite the river walkway

    Superb museum
    The museum is modern and welcoming. The art exposed is obviously incredible. The setting of the sculptures and artefacts is extremely well done. Also this museum is not overwhelming the visitors with thousands of exhibits but focuses of key pieces which are in synch with Karnak and Luxor temple. To be recommended absolutely to all visitors.

    A brilliant museum that’s quieter than it should be
    There were some beautiful statues in amazing condition in this quiet museum right on the Nile corniche. There were basic descriptions of all artefacts which helped with understanding. There were also some old coins, pottery, weapons, and glass objects but the main highlight for me was being able to see statues up close - the one of tuthmosis 3 especially incredible. Entrance fee was 300EGP when we visited & tickets can be bought with card at the entrance. We spent about 1 hour in total.

    Worth a Visit
    Great museum, really worth a visit. The displays are dust-free and well cared for. If you have been to the temples and tombs near Luxor, this museum showcases the statuary and artefacts that were excavated from those locations. We went in the evening and it was much cooler.

    Don't Miss the Luxor Museum!
    One of the best museums we visited in a trip to Egypt filled with marvelous museums. The Luxor Museum has a superb collection of art and artifacts that are beautifully displayed. The explanatory information is also first-rate; we learned a great deal about pharaonic civilization that we had not known before. Thanks to the museum, too, for allowing non-flash photos. This museum is a must before visiting the astounding Luxor sites. An added bonus: the gift shop has excellent reproductions and local wares.

    Museums have the best stuff
    The museum is situated on the Corniche near the Luxor Temple. It is cool and uncluttered and has a modern feel. It is well signposted in English and Arabic and has beautiful statues found at Thebes (Luxor). While you can see amazing things at Karnak and Luxor some of the extraordinary statues have been moved to museums in Cairo and here where they can be protected. There are two floors and one includes two mummies. Non-flash photos are allowed. This museum is closed in the middle of the day - visit early or late. We visited around 6 to 7 pm and it was uncrowded. We often pre-arranged guided tours in Egypt, this visit we went by ourselves and everything went smoothly. We walked from our hotel along the Corniche, paid for our ticket and enjoyed our time here at our leisure.

The informative guided tour of the Luxor Museum offered a deeper understanding of Egypt's past, while the traditional Egyptian dinner served aboard a felucca cruise was a culinary delight."

V interesting not v well laid out and quite dark but fascinating.amazing artifacts and yes it is time for historical items to go back to their original places. Louvre and British Museum should return Egyptian artefacts.

They have well preserved artifacts here though the number of artifacts was rather small I thought. Maybe Cairo hogs them. A modern looking interior and roomy. Enjoyed the visit.
