Very well-organised, not overcrowded and not overloaded with artefacts. The only downside is the minimum amount of information and the lack of the accession numbers on the labels. Exhibited amongst other artefacts is the mummy of Ahmose, the founder of the 18th Dynasty; giant head of Rameses II; and the wooden chariot from king Tut's tomb. I loved the museum... More

Well-displayed and nicely lit artifacts of Ancient Egypt. This is a great break from the hustle of Luxor, and includes items taken from the nearby Valley of the Kings. Don't miss the side gallery to your right as you enter - there are some recently unearthed, perfectly preserved statues in there that are worth the price of admission on their... More

Surprised that it wasn't much bigger but did have some nice artifacts. I didn't like that they had a hand written sign at the entrance, not ticket counter, for an extra fee to take pictures. Guide book said pictures were oj but once I took a picture someone came up to and started yelling that I had to pay extra... More

This museum is exactly what the Egyptian Museum in Cairo should be - well set up, exhibits safely displayed, with eye for detail.

New, beautifully laid out, informative labeled small museum with artifacts mostly from Luxor. The section on the pharoh (name?) who's statues have an elongated jaw are fascinating. No one knows why he broke with long-standing sculptural tradition. Who a few hours.

We had some free time before doing our visits to Luxor and we decided to visit the museum. It is not very big but comprehensive enough to showcase the temples on Luxor. It is a new museum and it is better organised than the one in Cairo. It has some statues in excellent shape that were found hidden in Luxor... More

Stunning exhibits in an art gallery type of presentation. Really well done and well labelled. Air conditioned and pleasant to walk around. Some of the major Egyptian exhibits are here - don't miss it.

Very nice, though small, museum with some beautiful pieces. Don't expect interactive displays and audio guides, but it's well-curated compared to other museums in Egypt, with nice lighting and a posted explanation of each piece. You can buy a camera pass for 50 LE (less than $3). I wouldn't take time away from the truly fantastic temples and tombs for... More
