The Luxor museum is very small compared to Cairo Museum but it is very well organised and it holds the very unique pieces of art. You will enjoy the visit to Luxor Museum very much. You don't really need a tour guide in this museum because of all the information displayed in front of every piece and the way it... More

This museum is on the smaller side, but well laid out and included artifacts well worth seeing. Worth the visit, can be done in an hour or take up to 2, I would say.

This museum is in a modern, secure building which compares well with European museums. It houses some truly world class statuary and other well chosen exhibits from ancient Egypt, all of which are displayed in a modern style. When I was there in Feb 2017, it was quiet and peaceful. It is definitely worth paying the 50LE (Less than £3)... More

Air-conditioned, low level lighting, and with some of the most beautiful statues I've ever seen: some literally brought a lump to my throat. I went on my own, leaving my teenagers behind, and it was simply magical. Then a load of local teenagers came in and the magic was somewhat shattered! Never mind, for an hour it had been extraordinary.... More

It's really amazing, and describes multiple eras. If you could secure a guided tour, that would be really informative. I had a wide open mouth when I heard the corruption stories in the ancient civilization!! I also had a business sponsored dinner, in a pre-arranged special tent, and unexpectedly, the main course was so delicious. Thanks! Guide recommended for that... More

It’s a small museum but the displays are well-organized and the rooms are quite spacious. There are articles from King Tut’s tomb on display along with a couple of mummies. All the displays have signs in English. You can take photos inside for an extra 50 EGP. The museum is next to a relaxing pedestrian-only promenade along the Nile River.
