Extremely poor effort as a museum that will take 10 minutes to see. It’ll cost you LE100 (£5) to get in and in my personal view a complete waste of time and money. There’s one mummy to see, that’s it.

Nothing interesting or new learned during the visit. This is a tiny museum that is very over-priced. You will learn all abouy mummification with a decent tourguide around any of the sights in Cairo or Luxor.

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.

It's not cairo museum but has some interesting exhibits especially the mummies, though I expected more. Still a cool place to spend an hour out of the sun.

It takes less than an hour to visit this very small museum but it is an worthwhile visit. The price of 80 LE goes with the size of the place. If you already know a lot about Egyptology, you won't learn anything new but seeing...More
