Fantastic property both inside and out. Most unusual with much detail. Authentic Egyptian era items in showcases. Great presentation by Rocco. He is extremely knowledgeable and very interesting. Everyone should see this permanent exhibit at least once!

What a wonderful place to visit! It first begins with an overview of the Gold Pyramid House by the son of the owner. He is so informative and entertaining!! His knowledge of Egyptian history is amazing! I highly recommend this tour!
