This famous museum has served its time. It is being replaced by a new museum in Giza and it's about time. This old building looks more like a storage warehouse for ancient artifacts. The pieces in the museum are awesome but the building is old...More

What an amazing experience. This place is bursting at the seams with incredible artefacts and exhibits, I could easily have spent the entire day here and still not made it round everything. Some truly fantastic pieces, the entire Tutankhamen section was great to see and...More

The museum houses all the artefacts and mummies from the various tombs including the most famous one of Tutankhamen. A absolute not-to-be-missed museum on your list of Cairo.

This museum is full of Egyptian artifacts and antiquities. Just think of it as wandering through the 'attic' of a great ancient culture! There is so much to look at , with kind of minimal labeling but a wonderful immersive experience if you just allow...More

No air conditioning in this museum other than the King Tut room. It was hot with only circulating fans. The bathrooms were ick. I’ve never been to a world class museum where no guard were present to keep people from touching items. This is a...More

New museum is supposed to open this year and next, but....In the meantime if it's not, this is a very worthwhile stop if you are in Cairo. Displays the gap between British Empire Colonialism and the left-overs for the native land. The original Rosetta Stone...More
