This museum is very boring, and dissapointing. Entrance is quite expensive (consider the photo ticket), ony poor exhibits, bad light. NOT worth a visit.

As others have noted this place is pretty small so you only need 30-60 minutes. The big highlight here is that there are actually signs on the displays so you can learn about mumification as well as some about the burials trappings etc. Also, it’s...More

We saw a lot of fake itmes on display and the mumification information is minimal. The only positive thing is that you can cool down from the heat outside.

Tiny place by with some really interesting artifacts and amazing well preserved mummies, both animal and human. Definitely recommend stopping in

This is a very small museum with only a few exhibits. We had walked from our hotel which was about 25mins away but only spent about 20 mins in the museum. As with all museums in Egypt they are very dimly lit.
