Egyptian Museum Ticked off
The Egyptian museum ticked a bucket list, finally saw the King Tut exhibitions, I had been looking forward to seeing this live for many years. Absolutely worth the experience.

Museums tour guide was like a grand story
Jun. 2021 • Friends
This museum tour was incredible. To be chaperoned by an actual Egyptologist I have to say made this the most detailed informed tour it could possibly be. The museum is literally spilling with so many artifacts that there isn’t enough space to hold them all. You could get lost and spend an entire day in a few sections. Before you step inside the museum the lesson begins and from there it’s non stop beautiful sculptures, paintings, artifacts, stories, jewelry, etc. This truly was an incredible tour and after being there fir hours we still didn’t see all there was to see inside the museum. This tour guides was very detailed and knowledgeable of Egyptian history. The tour she led us on felt like a story. It wasn’t just look at this and move along. She knew the history of each piece and guided us through chronologically through the museum and was very patient with us we explored as well.

Lots of amazing artifacts but not user-friendly
The quality of artifacts here is amazing; the way they are presented, unfortunately, is pretty shabby. It’s as if the museum is frozen in another era—the 1920s, maybe. The old dusty cases packed in close together are like going to an Indiana Jones movie set, but the faded or missing labels are no fun. There are lots of exhibits that must be important, but there’s no way for a visitor to know. The temp in summer was slightly cooler than outside, and there seemed to be a lot of disarray involving moving some artifacts to the two new museums in Cairo.

Exquisite
Apr. 2021
The best museum in Egypt so far for ancient Egyptian monuments. It is a massive museum that has been collecting centrally the Egyptian mummies, sculptures, and tombs, and almost everything. Now, some mummies have been transferred to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization, and more items are progressively transferred to the new foreseen Grand Egyptian museum. A guided tour is recommended to hear marvelous stories.

Great selection of Artifacts
Feb. 2020 • Friends
This museum is big but not all the the artifacts can’t fit in this building because they have about 120 thousand that is why they are building the biggest Museum in the World so that they can move everything inside, there is so much to see in this museum for 200 Egyptian pounds.

Self tour at the egyptian museum
Feb. 2020 • Couples
Went there in the morning on a week day by taxi from hotel. At 9.30am a lot of tour buses started to come in. There were many tourist guides at the entrance offering private tour in case anyone make a last minute decision to use them but we did not take one. There is an entrance fee but no photography fee if you just take photo using your handphone. We could not find any pamphlets and most exhibits do not have description on them. The exhibits are grouped by different eras and there are not properly sequenced. If you want to learn about egyptian history then advisable to take a tourist guide. There were still refurbishment work going on now so be careful. And be sure to cover all the nooks and crannies as they have wonderful exhibits there. Overall, we had a wonderful 2.5 hours in the museum (yes it will take you at least that long to see everything if you dont take any rest). Would definitely take my kids in the future to visit the mummies!

A must see in Cairo!
Feb. 2020 • Friends
We arrived as the museum was preparing to send artifacts to the new museum, but most of the main ‘must see’ artifacts are still there. Fantastic museum with so much to see. Pay the extra and see the mummies - a bit creepy but also fascinating. We learned so much about Cheops during the Great Pyramid tour it was good to see his little statue and also (eewww) his internal organs that look like bags of sand in the protective case. The ancient Egyptians were extremely clever. The meteor carved into a perfect pyramid was a highlight, as was Ramses II mummy and the King Tut room. Definitely worth getting a guide for this for and stay longer than a couple of hours if you can.

Visiting this extraordinary place
Dec. 2019 • Couples
We visited the museum as part of our Abercrombie and Kent tour. What is on display is amazing especially the jewelry, mummies and King Tut artifacts. That said, the museum is so crowded, hot, and poorly curated. Go with a guide as it is a must... even with its challenges. And it is currently being rebuilt.
