Again the Howard Carter House isn't on the usual tourist itinerary but worth a visit. Currently 50LE which includes entrance to the replica Tutankhamun tomb.

I am sorry, but I am serious about Egypt and I appreciate the focus on Carter and his discovery of King Tut's tomb (and other important discoveries) but I was disappointed with the presentation. Basically for 50 LE (only $5) you walk through the house and see his stuff sitting on his desk and where he lived while he worked... More

A visit to Howard Carters house was an afterthought whilst in the area. It was most interesting and had it's own guide. The house is equipped with all the original fixtures such as study, bedrooms of Carter and Early Carnarvon, kitchen and many other extras. The house gives an insight to the time of search and discovery of Tutankhamen's Tomb.

Interesting to see where Howard Carter lived. Nice view and peaceful garden. The replica of Tut's tomb is now open so that was also interesting with lots of information plaques on the walls.

We visited this House of Howard Carter which is set out to reflect the way he lived almost 100yrs ago. It contains most of he`s work and photographs from earlier digs up till he discovered King Tuts tomb in Valley of kings. It gives a great insight into how he lived and perceived the era and documented everything he discovered.... More

We spent a wonderfully relaxing hour at this house. Step back in time, this house has peace flowing through it. Left just as it was in HC day. His possessions are amazing, the camera, phonograph, hats, papers etc. An amazing insight into life for HC.
