I was on a business trip some 2 years back and luckily got a day off so I decided to visit the very famous Museum, at the outset let me mention it is very beautiful, if you want to actually check out the history of Egyptian civilization this is the place to be, entry is aroung 10 USD, THey have preserved the remains of the 'Mummies' here and you need to pay an extra 10 USD . Its worth going too.. However the highlight of this evening was something that followed as soon as i exited the Museum. I was looking strugglig to crosss the road, then a well dressed jolly Egyptian man late in his 50's saw me struggling he came to my rescue and held my hand and helped me cross the road. I was Delighted! and thanked him when he told me that there were more BMW's in Egypt compared to Germany, ( i didnt know that for sure) post this he shared some more info on the muesuem and egypt and invited me to his office (it was actually a shop) I still dont believe i ended up buing artefacts worth 100 USD from his shop.. It taught me something about Egypt and Egytians - Its not just a land about Mummies, they are brilliant salesmen as well!
All said and done do visit the place if you are in Egypt
