I could have stayed there all day. The king tut display had my teenager interested for over an hour (not an easy task).

the museum has over 130,000 pieces to view. I recommend a good tour guide (Deluxe Tours of Egypt) to take you here. They will know what you need to see and where all pieces are.

went there with my Mexican friend so we did the tour in Spanish. Enjoyed each part of it specially Ikhnatoon family and Tout Ankamon room especially the golden mask. You cannot visit Cairo without going there. Recimmending to do the tour with Cairo Tower it is too near. You have to leave your cam in the main gate.

I wish I could have spent more time here. There's so much to see...definitely requires more than one visit but our tour guide made sure we saw the big ticket items...Rosetta Stone, mummies, and King Tut's tomb

Get to this museum early as it gets very busy. You can purchase a photography pass at the same time you get your entry ticket. The museum collection is enormous, so hire a good guide to navigate you through the important artifacts ( our guide Mohammed Badawy was brilliant).. You could probably spend weeks here and still not see everything.... More

An incredible collection. Go with a great guide who will lead you down the way with the history of Egyptian pharaohs until you get to the prize..Tutankhamans collection. Incredible. The golden mask alone is worth the visit. And almost no foreign tourist right now.
