I found it was helpful to bring along a layout of the museum that I had photocopied from a travel guidebook. This plan indicated, for each of the two floors, the objects that should not be missed and their location by room or item number. The museum can be overwhelming upon entering it, but, with a plan in my hand,... More

This place is just unbelievable. Full of so much history that you truly need more than one day to experience it all. Luckily we had a private guide who took us around the highlights and gave us a wealth of information on each peace. The King Tut room and and the mummy room are not to be missed and are... More

The amount of treasures hidden in this Museum is second to none. It is a feast to the eyes and heart touching stories does make you reel back in time. I definitely suggest people to visit this museum with an official/Audio Guide for the first day and second day could be more exploratory or adventurous by oneself. Mummy room shouldn't... More

This museum has a wonderful collection of items. Not all are marked. There are extra fees to go in the mummy rooms and the King Tut jewelry room. Photos are not allowed in some places and guards are watching. If you can go with a guide, that would be best. The King Tut items are amazing.

After a lifetime of reading about King Tut's tomb, learning about ancient Egyptian culture and studying Biblical history, it was awesome to step into this museum which is lined from wall to wall and floor to ceiling with relics and artifacts from the worlds earliest advanced civilization. The crowning jewel of the collection is King Tut's tomb, recreated within the... More

You must visit this Museum to fully understand the reason why you travel Egypt. Everything in here basically explains everything in Egypt (Tour guide is a must). The payment for the Mummies isn't included in the Museum entrance, but it is worth the try because the mummies are so beautifully preserved as if they are not +-5,000 years old you... More

Since most of the pyramids had been stripped of all their contents the only place to see the majority of them was a t the museum,. Our tour guide explained just about the whole museum to us. He was so very knowledgeable.

Huge museum with amazing collection of pharaonic ancient history, it is highly recommended that you hire any of the tour guide so he would explain to you the beautiful stories behind each and every piece, 4 hours are good enough (split them into 2 days)

I don't know what I was expecting actually, but I had heard that this museum, while filled with ancient treasures, was a complete mess in so far as displays - it wasn't anywhere near as bad as I thought it was going to be, so that was a plus! This museum was going to get a 5/5 from me anyhow... More
