Great but showing its age

The museum is very good and well worth a visit - but the displays are dated, but content is great - I liked it.

There is so much for the eye to see and the mind to take in that it is almost impossible. You can spend ALL day here and not see it all. Cameras are allowed but you must purchase an admission ticket and photography ticket. You also must bring some spare change or dollars with you as all the toilets are... More

This museum is a must, even though much of it has been ransacked or ruined from the internal strife a few years ago, it is still the house of Tut, the place where you will see the most antiquities and its full of surprises. Again, a guide is a must. Friendly Planet took us, and our guide was an Egyptologist.... More

The number of pieces exhibited are exhausting and as Migo , our guide says needs a lot of giga bites in our brain to process!! Haha. But Migo made it so interesting and systematic that we barely realised where the 3 hours of visit went. He explained usual and unusual things with great interest and we felt really happy to... More

The Egyptian museum is without doubt THE museum as it consits of some of the biggest treasures of the world, those who haven't been stolen to other museums like the British. The place used to be so popular that you had difficulties coming close to the artifacts, but due to the problems on the Tahir square next door, there's plenty... More

The museum has an awesome amount of artifacts but completely lacks any curator vision. Row after row of sarcophagi with no story does not make a museum. Most displays had only numbers on them, so you had to bring a guide to get any context or significance of a particular piece. (the exception was the Tut treasure exhibit with small... More

The museum contains the majority of artifacts from Tutenkhamuns tomb in the valley of the kings as well as much from the local pyramids in Giza. The main attractions have to be the golden mask and the mummy room.
