Imhoptep was the architect behind the Step Pyramid. Here, we were first brought into a theatre to watch a Nat Geo video on the Step Pyramid before entering a fully air-conditioned, proper museum. Proper meaning exhibits are properly encased, with labels and descriptions. No photos...More

Visited this museum because it was on our itinerary with a tour company, after we visited Saqqara Necropolis which we did enjoy. The museum is very small, had some interesting things but I will hardly remember much because they don't allow any photographs. That always...More

Our tour group stopped here. Interesting objects from the Old Kingdom. Our guide pointed out Imhotep's name in hieroglyphs. Wonderful small statues. Worth the time to visit on your way to Djoser's Stepped pyramid at Saqqara.
