We found it literally looks like the attic of a hoarder. You pay an entrance fee, you can pay extra for the mummy rooms and also if you want to take your camera in. Very very very unorganized, the space as well as the objects,...More

Extremely sad situation the building itself is historical the items on exhibition are as old as history itself... extremely poor organization, very very old show boxes, no air conditions ... very very poor management to the whole thing... the responsibles should be ashamed of themselves...More

Went there by myself but would recommend a tour guide. Place is a bit old but apparently a new one is under construction. Too many things to see but they are better seen with some form of explanation.

This was my 2nd time to visit this museum. The temperature inside was very hot and many of the items on display were moving out to the new museum, hopefully, I will come back to the new museum in one day.

In my opinion, it is the best museum in whole the world. You can see more than 120 thousands pieces. The most famous are the collection of king tutankhamun, the royal mummies, the old kingdom, the middle kingdom and the New kingdom.
